Monika Radojevic: Poetry reading and Feminist Invoicing

Saturday 24 September 2022

Brontë Festival of Women’s Writing 2022

Brontë Festival of Women’s Writing 2022

Monika Radojevic: Poetry reading and Feminist Invoicing.  Part of the Bronte Festival of Women's Writing.

Join Monika Radojevic, winner of Stormzy’s #Merky New Writer’s Prize, for readings from her poetry collection ‘Teeth in the Back of My Neck’. In the second half of this event Monika will lead an empowering poetry writing workshop using an invoice-style template. 

Feminist Invoicing is a concept that allows the individual to ‘submit’ an invoice to the patriarchy to provide their own interpretation of hurt; an act of empowerment where they and they alone get to dictate the terms of their pain and conditions of their healing. Invoicing is a daily experience for many people, so the common format is being subverted not just as a critique on capitalism but also to suggest that the experiences are beyond simple monetary value. It is a format that allows for great flexibility and open interpretation.
Monika Radojevic is a poet, writer, founder of Feminist Invoicing and works in feminist political communications. Her work defies expectations by leaning into rage and imperfection, two things women have historically been prohibited from being.
