November’s Guest Poet: Vik Bennet from Wild Women Press.
Victoria Bennett is an award-winning poet, creative activist and full time home educating Wild Mama to her son, Django. Originating from the borderlands below Scotland, she is the Founder of Wild Women Press and Blissfool Books, and has spent the last quarter of a century instigating creative experiences in her community, including the Wild Women Salons. Her poetry has appeared in print, online and even in the popular video game, Minecraft. She has published 4 collections and performed live across the UK, from Glastonbury Festival to a Franciscan Convent. Most recently, she has been part of the award winning #MeToo - A Women’s Poetry Anthology.
“…Victoria Bennett’s poetry can only deepen with repeated readings. Her themes of personal loss and passionate love resonate universally, along with her message of acceptance and renewal…”
