Women in Print: A Special International Women’s Day Event

Readings Carlton — 309 Lygon St, Carlton, Victoria, 3053

print Kill Your Darlings and Readings join forces to present a lively discussion of the fate of women in publishing, writing and the media in the noughties.

Women’s writing has been proven to be woefully under-represented in the US literary scene – what’s the situation here? What challenges do women face when forging a career in print – or when being represented in print? (For example, why the focus on female politician’s relationships and parenting status? What’s the impact of combining writing with motherhood?)

KYD editor Rebecca Starford chairs a panel of formidable women in print: feminist author and commentator Monica Dux (The Great Feminist Denial), Sleepers editorial director Louise Swinn (also a contributor to KYD Issue 4) and Sophie Cunningham (past editor of Meanjin, writer, journalist)

We welcome gold coin donations at all Readings events, with proceeds going to the Readings Foundation.
