Feast of Verse Poetry Book Club

May’s Read: Magic With Skin On by Morgan Nikola-Wren

This month we are indulging in a very special collection by Morgan Nikola-Wren ǀ @morgannikolawren. Magic with Skin On comes direct from the heart. Chronicling the relationship between a lonely artist and her absent-albeit-abusive-muse, Magic with Skin on will gently break you, then put you back together again. 

Discussion Date: 1 June, 2017 on Good Reads.

Get your copy of the anthology here.


How does the Feast of Verse Poetry Book Club work?
Each month Yaz will bring you a new anthology to read and at the end of the month she will lead a discussion on the merits of the anthology.

How do I participate?
Buy or borrow a copy of the anthology and then participate in the discussion at the end of the month online on the Feast of Verse Instagram page here.

How do we discuss the anthology?
The discussion takes place online here on the first day of the following month.  Yaz will pose a number of questions for discussion and will also respond to your opinions and thoughts as well.

Wait, I can’t read the book this month!
For those who cannot participate this month Yaz will also write a review of the work for you to feast on. This will be available on our website at the end of the month.

I have a question, what should I do?
Please contact Yaz ǀ @feastofverse direct on Instagram if you have any questions. She is always happy to help.
