Writing the Body: TWR at New Suns Feminist Literary Festival

Join us at New Suns: A Feminist Literary Festival at the Barbican Centre for a panel discussion featuring writers whose work engages with myth-making around the body.

 

Writing the Body will explore approaches to writing about different sorts of bodies in fiction, poetry and non-fiction; ranging from the pregnant to the monstrous, and from medical discourse to the symbolic realm.

 

Participants include Kate Zambreno, author of Heroines and Book of Mutter, Daisy Johnson, author of Fen and the Booker-shortlisted Everything Under, Eleanor Morgan, who is currently writing a book about hormones and mental health, and poet and artist Khairani Barokka, author of Indigenous Species. The discussion will be chaired by Alice Hattrick.

 

3 November 2018 | 14.45 | £10.50* | Book tickets

 

*Please note that we have a small number of free tickets on offer for those on low income. Please email us at editors@thewhitereview.org if you would like to request a free ticket.
