Women’s writing celebrated at the xx minifest
Friday 26 October 2012, 12:04
Writing by and for women will be celebrated this weekend as the xx minifest of women’s writing 2012 takes place in Cardiff.
This inaugural festival will take residence at Chapter Arts Centre this Saturday, 27 October. It aims to publicise the range and diversity of writing by women from Wales in the English language, and encourages both men and women to attend and take part.
This one day minifest will act as a “taster session”, as a more extensive literary programme is already being planned for 2013.
I put a few questions about the festival to Susie Wild, one of the co-organisers of the xx minifest. Wild is a writer, an editor at Parthian Books and she also organises the Cardiff Literary Salon, and will be holding a special edition of the literary gathering for the festival.
