How To Be Held

How To Be Held


"To be held is to be embraced, not only by the bodies or cities around you, but also by yourself. 


Maddie Godfrey's debut poetry collection is an ode to resilience, vulnerability and tenderness. Using personal experiences, the author explores gender politics, body positivity, trauma and self preservation. 


How To Be Held aches with an intimate familiarity, like a diary entry which you cannot remember writing but still recognise yourself within. These poems are strong in the softest way."
