The Feminist Writers Festival is happening this year in Melbourne in May.
The Feminist Writers Festival takes place in Queen Victoria Women’s Centre Trust in Melbourne, Australia. The theme this year is “Rewriting the Story” and as described on their website:
“Rewriting the Story invites you to explore feminist thinking and writing now. Discover how feminist writers in Australia are using words to make change, creating powerful personal and political narratives, and choosing stories over silence. Hear how feminist writers are tackling topics of violence against women, activism and advocacy, and how women actively mentor one another, sustain feminist voices, come together and break the silence. Learn about skilling up, inclusivity, creating communities and working towards change.”

These were three of her quotes which resonated with me that night:
“The reason I read so much is because it’s better than life.”
“I write so slowly I could write with my own blood and I wouldn’t hurt myself.”
“You can’t teach writing –
It’s like teaching people to be tall.”

20th of October is the National Day on Writing.
For me writing is a form of therapy…it helps me get all the stuff churning in my mind on paper which is extremely freeing.
The National Novel Writing Month is happening in November.
As per their website:
“National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.”
Free free to add me as a buddy as I have signed up for the first time and would like to be inspired by others participating also:
