What happens when four women who have never met each other have a conversation in poetry? 

In How Bright the Wings Drive Us, the poetic voices of Morag Anderson, Barbara DeCoursey Roy, Maeve McKenna and Audrey Molloy resonate like a song sung in rounds. Beginning with the seed poem, ‘Coloratura’, clear themes emerge around feminine awakening, motherhood and ageing, and the changes associated with each stage of life, with musical and botanical threads connecting and weaving the poems.
