Coping with loss through poetry

From Afternoons, 1:27 pm on 22 November 2019

When people close to you die, often the phrase used is "I have no words" 

It was the same for Elizabeth Kirkby-McLeod when her father took his own life in 2012. But she's a poet and had to express her feelings somehow.

So she took the words from a play and a government document and created a book of poetry titled Family Instructions Upon Release. She's in studio now to tell us about it.
