Eleanor was also invited to read her poem ‘Bridie’s Tomb’ at the launch of the ‘Women on Brexit’ Special Issue of Poem Magazine. The launch was held in the House of Commons. Eleanor’s poem brings the voices of the female ghosts of St James’s Cemetery, Liverpool into the Brexit debate. http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/rpom20/current
