FWF16 full program released

We are thrilled to announce the program details for our networking day, Friday 26 August. Writers and readers from around the country will come together at the iconic Queen Victoria Building in Melbourne’s CBD to discuss topics from feminist publishing and the politics of personal writing, to building feminist communities and mothering from the fringes.

Writers include Maxine Beneba Clarke, Anastasia Kanjere, Lian Low, Susan Hawthorne, Emily Maguire, Zoya Patel and Clare Wright, who will speak from their experience, in discussion with the audience – networking, interrogating, conversing and questioning what it is to be a feminist writer and reader. View the full program here.
