Jacqueline Saphra

This specially devised performance combines musical ‘miniatures’ by composer Benjamin Tassie and readings from All My Mad Mothers, which explores love, sex and family relationships in vivacious, lush poems that span the decades and generations.

Ledbury Poetry Competition winner Jacqueline Saphra’s poems are described by Naomi Shihab Nye as ‘gutsy transfusions of wondrously vivid characters, described with painterly richness’.
