FWF Round-Up: September 2017


Don’t miss out on our workshops in Melbourne this coming weekend. While our Feminist Opinion Writing workshop with Van Badham has sold out, there are still a few spots left for the morning workshop Writing Life, Writing Self with the wonderful Carly Findlay – but be quick!

FWF will be heading to Canberra in October. Jessica Friedmann will share memoir tips and tricks in the Writing Life, Writing Self workshop on Sunday 8 October, and Shu-Ling Chua, Rosanna Stevens and our own Louise Taylor will talk Giving Up the Good Girl later in the month.

We’re also thrilled to introduce the FWF Q&A: a monthly interview series with Australian feminist writers. First up, we have the brilliant Amal Awad (above), whose recent book, Beyond Veiled Clichés, explores the truths behind widespread stereotypes about Arab women. Read our interview with her now.

FWF Round-Up: August 2017


Thank you to everyone who came along to our event at Melbourne Writers Festival last weekend, Feminist Lit: Then & Now. We enjoyed a scintillating discussion of feminist literature between Natalie Kon-YuMelissa Lucashenko and Emily Maguire, chaired by the excellent Sophie Cunningham.

We have more fabulous workshops and events coming up in October in Melbourne and Canberra – mark your diaries and book your spots now.
