Julia Davenport: ‘Order and Chaos’ Book Launch
The poems in this brand new book are about Love, War, Anti-Austerity, Mental Health, Domestic Violence, Murder, Child Abuse, Gender Identity, Race, and Climate Change.
All Book profits are being donated to the mental health charity ‘Mind’.
This collection of poetry is based on and around the themes of Order and Chaos. It has been written from a Socialist standpoint, and as a form of protest to give previously marginalised voices the centre-stage spotlight.
“These honest, raw and uncompromising protest poems … provoke and compel us into reflection.” – Terry Hughes, Edinburgh Fringe First award-winning playwright
“A collection of hard-hitting verses. Order & Chaos is fantastically reflective of chaos whilst calling for order.” – The Nubian Times
“These are poems for today that need not only to be heard but to be acted upon – NOW!” – Naomi Sumner Chan, Creative Director at Brush Stroke Order
“This is strong work, full of life and energy. At times angry and uncompromising … this is poetry that cares, about people, about culture, and about the environment.” – Cathy Bryant, ed. Best of Manchester Poets, vols. 1-3
