"It is more than a year since the perfectly named Letters to the World was born. The book emerged out of the collaborative efforts of members of the Wom-po LISTSERV, an electronic discussion group of mainly women poets, which has been going since 1997. It is of particular interest for South African literary life - the original driving force behind the book came from local Moira Richards.Wom-po, says Moira, “lift[s] me out of the small country on the southernmost tip of Africa where I live” (p.337), and “the thing that drove/ sustained me in the beginning was the picture of this book of poems in my hand, on my shelf."
