The Feminist Writers Festival brings together feminist writers and readers to connect and strengthen the diverse writing communities around Australia. The festival aims to expand the themes and voices around feminism and women’s writing by offering a space for critical engagement and practical support for all feminist writers and readers.

The day-long networking day will be held on Friday 26 August at the Queen Victoria Women’s Centre, in Melbourne’s CBD, and will feature sessions covering topics from feminist publishing and the politics of personal writing, to building feminist communities and mothering from the fringes. Writers such as Emily Maguire, Maxine Beneba Clarke, Monica Dux, Shakira Hussein and Clare Wright will speak from their experience in discussion with other writers and the audience – networking, interrogating, conversing and questioning what it is to be a feminist writer and reader.
