Jumping into a Waterfall by Anna Percy
Book Launch Live Stream on the Flapjack Press Facebook Group page
From the seclusion of the Scottish isles to the urban vigour of Manchester to the lowlands of East Anglia, Anna Percy observes an ever-changing world wherein change is sometimes imperceptible.
This passionate and enticing meditation of ecopoetry also explores modern feminism and its societal perception, whilst thematically embracing sensuality, mental health and wellbeing, love and loss.
Anna Percy was born and educated in Norfolk, but has lived in Manchester for over a decade. In 2010, she co-founded Stirred, the influential pro-feminist collective which organises poetry performances and workshops across North West England. Her award-winning poetry is written for both the page and the stage, is post-pastoral, occasionally surreal, and an exercise in hope for sexual equality and an advocacy of women’s rights.
“A vivid evocation of place and a celebration of life and the body. Her work suggests the oneness of self and environment; that separation is an illusion.” - Steve O’Connor, poet & educator
“A fabulous, feminist fighter whose new collection takes you on a journey into self-exploration and change. A wonderful addition to her poetry legacy.” - Shirley May, poet & founding director of Young Identity
“A signature understanding of imagination and skill. I feel invited into a quiet place of crowds and their secrets, knowingly held and softly told.” - Gerry Potter, poet & playwright
