Sammy Weaver | Angola, America, Virtual Launch

Join us online for the launch of Angola, America (Seren 2022) by Sammy Weaver, winner of this year’s Mslexia Poetry Pamphlet Competition. Angola, America takes its name from a prison in Louisiana in the southern United States. With tenderness and rage, these poems sing with urgency as they breach the silences surrounding the ongoing horrors of capital punishment and our criminal (in)justice systems.  Sammy's poems have appeared in The Moth, The Irish Times, The Island Review and Anthropocene, and have been anthologised in various collections.  She won The Moth Magazine’s Nature Writing competition in 2020 and was shortlisted for a Northern Writers’ Award for poetry and Nine Arches Press' Primers scheme in 2021.  The event is free and will be held online via Zoom.
