We’ve almost recovered from a brilliant second festival. Thanks to all our performers, speakers, hosts, interns, supportive males and you, the fantastic audience.
The response has been really lovely. Some press has started to trickle through too…
In Wales Arts Review today John Lavin writes: ‘Taking place shortly after Cardiff Council confirmed it will remove its entire annual funding to more than ten arts organisations, including Chapter (where the event was held), the XX Women’s Writing Festival acted as a timely reminder of why a venue like Chapter exists, providing as it did, an excellent example of the cultural vibrancy of Wales’ capital city. The events combined a fabulous array of the new and the internationally renowned and were all well attended, while Chapter as a whole was full to bursting point throughout. It was also, of course, an ideal and, indeed, an important and empowering way to celebrate International Women’s Day.’
And here’s a nice radio piece on xx women’s writing festival thanks to Cardiff University student Petra Kovacevic. A longer piece on the sex panel is coming soon!
