When we think of poetry of the First World War, it is primarily soldier poets such as Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon who come to mind. Judith Palmer, Director of the Poetry Society, will introduce and read some of the women's poetry that emerged from the conflict: telling the story of poets who worked as nurses or ambulance drivers, and those who waited and mourned for brothers, lovers and sons.

Pay bar

Chance to view 'Traces of War: Landscapes of the Western Front' which includes images of women working in heavy industries in Scotland during the First World War
