The Feminist Caucus in Conversation series is an annual chapbook and audio project from the League of Canadian Poets. In this project, listen to members of the LCP Feminist Caucus interview each other on topics including poetry (naturally), shared identities, the writing process, family, politics, and more.
In the 2022 series, poets explore the concept of compassionate feminism. These are tough times we live in: pandemic inequities and our climate change emergency, and the ongoing pain of racial and economic injustice, act as clarion calls to action.
How can the essentially solitary act of making poems be sustained by a community of feminists who respect, admire and are curious about one another? How might feminist poets enact these qualities as interactions with each other? How might we as poets practice self-care and take care of each other?
