Join us to celebrate International Women’s Day on Monday 8th March, despite things not feeling particularly celebratory these days. But perhaps these things matter all the more in our restricted lives — to raise our voices together, however we can, to shout about our work, our achievements, our experiences.
I'm looking forward to joining the wonderful Rough Trade Books and Forum Bookshop on an extravaganza of an all-woman online event that we hope will bring a little bit of hope to your screens. I'm so excited to be part of this super special line up! There will be excellent poetry and prose and performance from Martha Sprackland, Briony Bax, Jen Calleja, Ren Aldridge, Charlotte Newman and Sheena Patel - And then we’ll finish with a conversation with the incredible Wendy Erskine and Salena Godden - Woah! I'm so looking forward to chatting with Wendy!
FREE event begins online at 7pm!
Also here's a juicy bonus for International Women's Day I will be chatting with my beautiful friend, the inspirational composer and violinist Anna Phoebe on the radio - So keep an ear out for our tweets and other social media for more about that on the actual day . . .
The anthology will include contributions from OWN IT! family: Kevin George,
Book of the month
