Two ground-breaking queer, feminist writers, one fascinating conversation
Izabela and Maria are Polish writers, based in different parts of Europe, come together in a special one-off event at The Writers’ Place in Brighton to discuss their writing and the themes which impact, inform and shape how they reflect on the shifting political situations and landscapes around them. Where and why do their themes converge or diverge? How is this crucial juncture in global politics impacting on the output of these two subversive writers? Join us for a vital conversation about how writers respond in precarious times. Saturday 5 October Book now
Izabela will use extracts of her own writing to initiate discussion of how and to what extent we allow politics to infiltrate the narrative content. Suitable for writers at any stage who are interested in confronting subversive and political themes through fiction without compromising the telling of a good story.
