Winner of the Prole pamphlet competition, 2022
I chose the winner, 28 Days, because when I read the poems I was struck by the truth and irony inside each poem: the heartbreak and the humour. Each poem was either something I knew or wanted to know more of through the poet’s words. By the time I’d read it twice, I was convinced that this pamphlet should be required reading by everyone - womb or no womb,
blood or no blood.
