At one remove from parental authority, aunts play a crucial role in the upbringing of children across the world. This anthology puts these women in the spotlight and explores what it means to be – and feels like to have – an aunt, historically and today. Some aunts are biological, some are chosen, but all have an impact on the way we learn to move through the world.

With poems from Natalya Anderson, J V Birch, Lily Blacksell, Stephen Bone, Carole Bromley, Kayo Chingonyi, Mary Anne Clark, Tracy Davidson, Brian Docherty, Charlotte Eichler, Amy Evans, Matthew Haigh, Robert Hamberger, Jan Heritage, Hilaire, Kathleen Jones, Angela Kirby, Gill Learner, Rachel Long, Ruthie Lowe, Gill McEvoy, David McKelvie, Mia, Joan Michelson, Isabel S Miles, Winifred Mok, Margot Myers, Anita S. Pulier, Kim M. Russell, Elisabeth Sennitt Clough, Rob Walton, Kate White, Simon Williams and Anna Woodford.
