Poetry for the over 60s
It is never to late to start writing! And now there has never been a better time for women over the age of 60 to pursue the publication of their own creative outputs. Grey Hen is a small independent press based in West Yorkshire. The company aims to publish poetry by women over the age of 60.
The company have already produced several books of poems including A Twist of Malice and Get me out of here.
The owner of Grey Hen says; 'We want to collect and share some of today's exciting new work by older women; work that is perhaps not being taken up by mainstream publishers. For older women, especially those who have reached their sixties before realising their writing potential, it's often the case that it is difficult to build up a publishing history in the expected way. Time is not on our side.'
