Event description

Description

Feminist Writers Festival, in conjuction with Geelong Library, presents an afternoon of feminist programming.

Saturday 26 May, 1-4pm

Workshop: Finding and Sustaining a Feminist Voice

Sure, you want to be a feminist writer – but what does that mean? In this workshop, writer Amy Gray shares all her tips on how you can start your a writing career and advance a feminist writing practice of your own, and work with your local writing community. Participants will be required to bring an idea or outline for a potential piece of writing, fiction or non-fiction, to share in the workshop.

This workshop is open to women and non-binary writers and focuses on developing the skills of emerging writers. Two places at this workshop are reserved for writers experiencing financial difficulty. Details on how to apply for these positions will be available on the Feminist Writers Festival website on Friday 30 March.

Saturday 26 May, 5-6.30pm

What Next for #MeToo? With Clementine Ford

Late last year, the #MeToo movement went viral, providing a historic public platform for women and non-binary people to speak out about their experiences of sexual harassment and assault. One of them was Clementine Ford, who first felt shame and self-doubt when beginning to write on the topic, but has since published on her own #MeToo moments, analysing them with honesty and clarity. Join Clementine in conversation to review the movement's past, present and future, and the many ways women are silenced, questioned, cross-examined and dismissed.
