XX Women’s Writing Festival
Prize-winning authors and artists, including novelist A.L. Kennedy, journalist Melissa Benn, poets Kathryn Simmonds and Kim Moore and painter Shani Rhys James are among the many wonderful women joining us in this year’s XX Festival. Both debut and established writers, including TV Producer Sue Vertue, Mslexia Editor Debbie Taylor, Virago Press publisher Lennie Goodings, authors Tiffany Murray, Dorothy Al Khafaji and Wales Book of the Year Winner Rhian Edwards will read from their work, take part in interviews, and share their thoughts on topics such as being a ‘fearless feminist’,sex in women’s writing, script and screen, and the state of publishing. In one panel, male writers and community leaders will read from their favourite women writers and discuss their influence. Workshops on writing and publishing can be booked in advance. Book early to avoid disappointment!
