The festival aims to celebrate the diversity and creativity of women writers. Throughout the weekend we'll be talking to some of the most celebrated women writers working today across a range of disciplines - including Orange Prize winning novelists, first time novelists, feminist commentators, academic researchers and TV screenwriters. Speakers include Stella Duffy, Helen Dunmore, Professor Helen Hackett, Professor Joan Adim-Addo, Emilia di Girolamo and Kristin Aune.
The festival will be chaired by the writer, journalist and broadcaster Bidisha and is founded by feminist activist, writer and novelist Sian Norris.
