This chapter takes a look at Virginia Woolf and the Hogarth Press's sponsorship of the unconventional writing of child poet Joan Easdale, noting that this sponsorship was made despite opposition from John Lehmann. It examines a network composed of Easdale, Stevie Smith, Naomi Mitchison and Woolf, against that of ‘W.H. Day Spender’. The chapter also reveals the story behind Easdale's appearance at the Hogarth Press, introduces the concept of ‘thirties poetry’, and also shows how the Hogarth Press represented a relevant site of encounter for a number of schools of poetry during the 1920s and 30s.

Keywords:   sponsorship, unconventional writing, Joan Easdale, John Lehmann, opposition, W.H. Day Spender, 1930s poetry, schools of poetry
