Details

Geneviève L. Walsh's last collection was split into two sections, ‘Lost’ and ‘Found’, outlining that everybody fits into one of those categories. This collection, written in the 2016-2020 mega-mystery-box of xenophobia and destruction, comes all in one chunk, as now is the time when almost everybody is just terrified. Vitriol Works is a sublimely subversive collection of hard-hitting honesty exploring social and sexual politics, identity and alienation, whilst searching for meaning within an un-governed, post-Brexit, pandemic-enduring nation. Geneviève L. Walsh is a sun-dodging poet, foul-mouthed queer feminist and Aldi Rosé Socialist who began performing in 2012. Walsh founded Halifax’s Spoken Weird in 2013, was a core member of A Firm of Poets until their 2017 swansong and has been a host/curator with Manchester’s Stirred Poetry collective since the same year. They released their first collection The Dance of a Thousand Losers with Flapjack Press in 2017, then debuted and toured their one-person show A Place in the Shade two years later. “As complex as it is accessible, and as passionate as it is nihilistic, this is a work of profound intelligence and insight.” — Clare Shaw, poet, playwright & writer "Gritty, lyrical and packed with dark humour.” — Sophie Sparham, spoken word artist & writer “A rallying call to all of us left behind by the inequalities of society – the perfect amalgamation of the personal and the universal.” — Kevin P. Gilday, spoken word artist & writer “Poetry to make your fists itch.” — Joelle Taylor, poet, playwright & author “She has the ability to tell a hard truth with a finesse and style that you can’t (and won’t want to) look away from.” — Dave Viney, spoken word artist & playwright “A rallying cry, a withering put-down and the best song you ever heard all at once. Northern Gothic at its finest.” — AJ McKenna, spoken word artist
