Run by four ex-Foyle poets (Jasmine Simms, Sarah Fletcher, Katie Byford and Helen Bowell), the Dead [Women] Poets Society gives readings and lectures on the work of past literary queens, exploring their influence on us and our writing, and on poetry more generally. We've had a string of successful performances at a variety of venues, including Bradford's Fuse Art Space, Durham Castle, and the Poetry Cafe, and with a wide range of poets: guest poets have included Frances Leviston, Camille Ralphs, Rachel Long, Emily Harrison, and Phoebe Stuckes.

The Dead [Women] Poets want to continue performing across the UK, with a goal of one performance every 2 months, and want to continue to ask diverse and exciting guest poets to perform with them. Because of this, and because our commitment to minimising unpaid labour in the arts, we're asking YOU to make a monthly donation to keep our events regular. As well as paying poets, artists, and venues, the months we are not preparing for a performance, your money will go to:

1) setting up the Dead [Women] Poets podcast, so we can make missed events accessible to everyone, and record the legacy
2) maintaining the Dead [Women] Poets website
3) reimbursing collaborators of the Dead [Women] Poets
4) giving the creators the time to give their full energy to this project

Because we value transparency, you'll be getting monthly updates as to where your money is money, and the result of your donation. We are in the process of setting up rewards for donators: as of now, we can offer you free admission to our events, but we'll soon update with more rewards: keep your eyes out for tote bags, t-shirts, and other Dead [Women] merchandise.

Goals
$0 of $200 per month
$200 a month will give the Dead [Women] Poets Society enough money to secure a venue, find 2 guest poets and pay them (as well as travel expenses) equally, and set up a podcast to interview guest poets/record these events.
We are aiming to have our next 3 shows in Sheffield, Oxford, and Birmingham.
