… affirming and creative, thoughtful and wide-ranging. It is unique in offering practical advice, support, activities geared to promoting visibility and publication outlets for women poets.
Discovering Second Light was for me like opening a door and letting in the fresh air: it’s unstuffy, wide-horizoned, inviting and inspirational.
…certain to become a must-have, must-read journal for all involved with contemporary poetry…
Hooray for ARTEMISpoetry! Why are women so good at poetry? Like Artemis the archer, they see so clearly, and they aim straight for the mark. Not distracted by ego or vanity, they just want to say it as it is – the most difficult thing in the world to do. Written, edited, financed wholly by women, full of excellent poems, reviews, articles and information, ARTEMISpoetry is just what we need.

Her Wings of Glass:
Her Wings of Glass is an amazing anthology — and most beautifully printed and produced
I must say I’m impressed! There are so many poets, so many unexpected poems. You’ve done us proud.
The anthology … is fabulous. Congratulations!
Prof. Dr. Lidia Vianu (Bucharest)
I’m completely wowed by the anthology: an absolutely outstanding collection making a powerful impact … I think it is the most important anthology for decades.
Many congratulations to the editors of Her Wings of Glass! I read it from cover to cover over Christmas and found it tremendously inspiring. It was such a pleasure to read work from poets new to me, or whose work was less familiar, as well as the well-chosen poems from those whose work I knew better. I thought the sections mapped a really helpful and convincing way through. The poems were so fine and urgent that the book was as hard to put down as any novel! I felt very honoured to have poems included.
just to congratulate Second Light on this huge anthology. There’s so much virtuosity among the poets – it puts to an end my reservations about the notion of ‘women’s poetry’ and I think the triumph comes from your chosen themes that brought out the passion women feel about our current situation – your introduction too was brilliant in priming us for what was to come. There were so many poets I ‘don’t know/hadn’t heard of’ I was so pleased to discover.
