Writing our lives

Bristol Women's Literature Festival

Panel Discussion

Sun 29 March 11:30

Waterside 3, Watershed

Duration:
90 mins

Are we living through the most exciting period of women’s memoir and auto-fiction writing? Women are turning to new forms of genre-bending writing to explore the body, motherhood, queer lives and sexuality, crafting narratives of women’s lives in essays, poems, fragments, biography and auto-fiction.

Dr Madhu Krishnan talks to Juliet Jacques (Trans: A Memoir), Olivia Sudjic (Sympathy; Exposure), Zeba Talkhani (My Past Is A Foreign Country) and Clover Stroud (The Wild Other; My Wild And Sleepless Nights) about why women are turning to new forms of memoir to explore and write our lives.
