Joanne Limburg and our host Julia Copus discuss two classic poems by Mathilde Blind, a once-celebrated, now neglected poet, scholar and intellectual, in another instalment of our special ‘Poetry Break’ series.

In ‘Writing vs Life: The Pram in the Hall’, we talk to a number of RLF writers about the challenges of balancing parenthood and a professional writing career, and whether mothers and fathers still have differing experiences in this area.

Julia Copus examines the role of intense personal experience in contemporary poetry, including her own recent work.

Joanne Limburg examines the complex responsibility of writing honestly about one’s own life when this also requires writing about the lives of others.
