Carolyn Jess-Cooke | Writing Motherhood

Debates surrounding the issue of motherhood have hounded women’s writing for decades, and despite advances in feminism, equality, maternity leave and childcare, we are still asking female writers with children how they find time to write. Writing Motherhood is a unique anthology of interviews, poems, and essays which interrogates contemporary representations of motherhood in media and literature. With excerpts from Sharon Olds to Hollie McNish and specially commissioned pieces by a range of writers, this is a vital exploration of sexual politics, artistic creation, and parenting.

Join editor Carolyn Jess-Cooke, and contributors Agnieszka Studzinska, Marianne Burton, Becky Cherriman, Rosie Sandler,Rebecca Goss, Sasha Dugdale, Jacqueline Saphra, Natalie Shaw,Louisa Adjoa Parker, Mel Pryor, Esther Morgan and SuzannaFitzpatrick for a stimulating evening of readings and conversation.
