The Hypercritic Weekly Newsletter - Issue #1

The Hypercritic Weekly Newsletter
Dear Hypercritics,
We are dedicating the very first issue of our newsletter to Poetry.
If you are here, you are likely to have discovered Hypercritic through our reading marathon, from March 15 to 21. It was a celebration of the works of 88 women poets, from both past and present.

Hypercritic Poethon 2021
Hypercritic celebrated World Poetry Day with a full week of readings on social media, featuring:
  • the works of women poets from 50 different countries;
  • 141 readers speaking 28 languages;
  • 100 minutes of non-stop readings.
You can enjoy the whole reading collection on Hypercritic’s Youtube channel. Meanwhile, here you have the highlights of the event, with a selection of records from Hypercritic’s brand new Poems section.
