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.

Proudly brought to you by Writes4Women with the support of Create NSW and Writing NSW.

Dec 8, 2018

With Gabrielle Blair, Mehreen Faruqi, Angela Williamson and chair Ann Brassil.

Feminism has key concerns around equality, violence and bodily autonomy, and there’s one area where those three concerns collide: our reproductive rights.

Hear from three fearless women working at the frontline: Dr Mehreen Faruqi MP, who’s working tirelessly at a state and federal level for abortion law reform; Angela Williamson who lost her job because of public comments about the need for abortion access; and Gabrielle Blair, a Mormon whose tweets about male responsibility for unwanted pregnancies went viral.
