Helen Mort - No Map Could Show Them

No Map Could Show Them. The pioneering Victorian women in mountaineering of the early twentieth Century. The women whose narratives and achievements became lost in the mountains, where they forged paths and ascended; their stories brought back down to earth, only to be silenced by the patriarchy.

Rediscovering and amplifying the voices of these female mountaineers today is acclaimed poet and keen climber Helen Mort, in her latest poetry anthology No Map Could Show Them. Natalie Berry interviews Helen on combining the introspective world of writing with the creative escape of the great outdoors, alongside poem readings and our UKC filmpoem 'Dear Alison.'
