Bristol Women’s Literature Festival returns this March with an exciting programme of talks and panel discussions from the country’s leading women writers, academics and feminist commentators. Throughout the festival, we’ll be celebrating female creativity and artistic achievements while discovering some of the best contemporary women authors around today.

Be inspired by your favourite young adult writer in Writing YA (Sun 18 March) or experience chills by re-discovering your love of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein in 200 Years of Frankenstein with Professor Marie Mulvey-Roberts (Sun 18 March). Don’t miss the chance to hear from speakers such as Louise Doughty, Meena Kandasamy, Patrice Lawrence, Samira Ahmed, Sheila Rowbotham and many, many more.
