Writing Our Lives

CANCELLED

Olivia Sudjic
Sun 29 March 2020,

The team behind Bristol Women’s Literature Festival have decided to cancel the festival in response to the coronavirus pandemic. See their website for more details. Bookers will be refunded by Watershed.

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.

Madhu Krishnan talks to Juliet Jacques (Trans: A Memoir), Olivia Sudjic (Sympathy; Exposure, pictured), 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.
