Women’s Things: writing from mid-life and menopause – online book launch

We don’t talk about ‘Women’s Things’.

As a society, we don’t often speak openly and frankly about menopause. But maybe we should…

This innovative anthology includes new writing by twenty women from across the East Midlands. Created as part of the Silent Archive Project, each piece of prose, poetry and memoir in the collection explores the strange, poignant, funny and difficult experiences of menopause and mid-life, offering fresh and illuminating perspectives on a taboo topic, and giving voice to stories that are rarely heard.

This collection is an act of defiance, solidarity and support. It is also an incredible insight into what it means to be a woman.

Join us for the launch of the anthology to find out more about the Silent Archive project and hear some of the writers reading their work.

Free, register via Eventbrite.

Please note: this event will not be recorded. The anthology will be available to buy – email events@fiveleaves.co.uk for details.
