Charlotte’s Accessioning examines what it is we consider worthy of remembering and her poems balance the differences between the memories forgotten and encountered again in a box or curiosity shop, and institutional memories that are preserved among museum artefacts.

“I've followed the Emma Press since its inception,” she said. “They are outward-looking, energetic, and constantly innovating. I'm really happy that my pamphlet has found its home with them. And it's nice to be stable-mates with Rebecca Hurst too.” 

Due to be published in June 2023.
