Kim Moore : 'All the Men I Never Married'
Show Notes

Welcome to The Seren Poetry Podcast, a series of conversations and readings with Seren poets. 

In this edition we speak with Kim Moore, winner of the Forward Prize for Best Collection 2022.   Her winning collection All The Men I Never Married is pointedly feminist, challenging and keenly aware of the contradictions and complexities of desire. The 48 numbered poems take us through a gallery of exes and significant others where we encounter rage, pain, guilt, and love and the ‘easy misogyny’ of everyday life. 

 The podcast is presented by Rhian Edwards  

The interviewer is Chris Gregory  

Recordings, production, sound design and editing are by Chris Gregory of Alternative Stories 

Recordings of Rhian Edwards are by Sarah Johnson 

 This conversation was recorded on location at Wordsworth Grasmere in the Lake District.
