‘A gem of the Bristol poetry scene,’ Southville’s Helen Sheppard brings

She’s learnt the skills of the trade in a career as nurse and midwife, in
performances in Bristol, London, Harvard and New York, and as joint organiser
of the popular ‘Satellite of Love’ open mic nights in Easton. Widely published
in literary magazines, her brilliant debut collection, Fontanelle, touches on
soft spots, birth, women, and those whose voices are often unheard. Come
