For these writers, poetry is part of a constellation of creative expression. Writing from different cultures and literary traditions, they convene to compare notes on their poetry practice, writing women’s experiences and the connections between poetry and other forms of art.

Bagi para penulis ini, puisi merupakan bagian dari kumpulan karya ungkapan perasaan yang kreatif. Menulis dari berbagai budaya dan tradisi sastra, mereka berkumpul untuk membandingkan catatan tentang praktik puisi mereka, menulis pengalaman wanita dan hubungan antara puisi dan bentuk seni lainnya.
