Butcher's Dog Publishing proudly presents Wagtail, its debut anthology of poetry, with many thanks to the support from ERIAC, the European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture.

 

Wagtail celebrates voices and visions from the margins. The book seeks to address historic and ongoing failures by the publishing industry to fairly represent the Gypsy, Roma, and Traveller (GRT) diaspora. 

 

Editor Jo Clement's foreword details the provenance of this inclusive international anthology and explains why it is vital mainstream publishing brings traditionally excluded voices and languages into print.

 

Here, established poets share pages with the previously unheard and unpublished. In solidarity against hate and all forms of misogyny: 'The Roma Women's Poetry Anthology' includes writing by gender-fluid, non-binary and transgender writers.

 

The anthology features specially commissioned artworks by Delaine Le Bas and Imogen Bright Moon, alongside these astounding poets:
