Writes4Festivals


Writing Festivals, Reading Festivals, Literary Festivals, Feminist Festivals, Festivals of ideas. Festivals, Festivals, Festivals! This podcast is all about the Festivals.

The Writes4Festivals Podcast covers all sorts of writing festivals from around regional NSW (and sometimes beyond). The Mudgee Readers Festival, The National Young Writers Festival, Storyfest and the Feminist Writers Festival are just some of the festivals you will see popping up on this podcast...and we aren't done yet!

Each festival brings it's own unique flavour and perspective on life and writing through panel discussions, readings, intimate conversations with writers and some truly hilarious comedy routines. Via the Writes4Festivals podcast you can be a part of it all with the added bonus of extra interviews and commentary from speakers and organisers.

Writes4Festivals - brings the festival to you.

Dec 9, 2018

With Debra Adelaide, Anna Funder, Dr Anita Heiss and chair Kerryn Goldsworthy.

It’s a universally acknowledged truth that women read more fiction than men…but why? For women who experience the majority of the emotional and mental load of managing families, homes and relationships, the novel seems poised as an ideal form to explore this terrain – the power wielded within it, its pitfalls, price, and pleasures. The novel can be a tool for resistance, a solace, and an art. So what does the imbalance in what gets published actually mean? How does it affect what is considered ‘worthwhile reading’? And what are the poor blokes missing out on?
