Why does women’s writing matter? Join Professor Moyra Haslett, Dr Alison Garden and writer and PhD student Dawn Watson to explore some of the answers.
The panel will reflect on more than three hundred years of women’s writing:
- Professor Haslett will discuss early women's writing, particularly the rise of the professional woman writer in the eighteenth century;
- Dr Garden will talk about contemporary women’s writing, romance and teenage girls/girlhood;
- Ms Watson will reflect on how the creative aspect of her PhD at the Seamus Heaney Centre links to her critical consideration of Elizabeth Bishop.
The panel is part of the Women Aloud NI Festival of Women’s Writing and will be chaired by Hilary McCollum, Chair of Women Aloud NI.
All are welcome at this event, which will appeal to anyone interested in women’s writing.
