Over three amazing days, the Feminist Writers Festival brought together feminist writers and readers to connect and strengthen the diverse writing communities that exist around Australia. The festival built on existing themes and voices around feminism and women’s writing by offering a space for critical engagement and practical support for all feminist writers and readers.
Hosted in partnership with the Melbourne Writers Festival, the 2016 Feminist Writers Festival comprised a sold out workshop and networking day on Friday 26 August at the Queen Victoria Women’s Centre, and five (packed out) public events, co-hosted by the Melbourne Writers Festival, on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 August at Federation Square and Footscray Community Arts Centre.
This week we’re excited about the launch of the Melbourne Writers Festival program, as we announce the details of our co-curated FWF public events.
We are thrilled to announce the program details for our networking day on Friday 26 August.
