(L-R) Penny Thomas, Carole Burns and Amy Wack plan the programme for 2014.

The xx women’s writing festival showcases writing by and for women from Wales and the world. Our second event will be held at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff from the 6th till 8th of March 2014.

The festival aims to bring together readers and new and established writers, plus editors and critics, to enjoy the burgeoning range and depth of writing by women from Wales in English.

The first xx festival, held in October 2012, sold out the theatre at Chapter and featured writers including prizewinning authors Nikita Lalwani, Rachel Trezise, and Roshi Fernando.

This year’s festival features more than twice as many authors, and is being held over two and a half days at Chapter.

To enjoy everything from cutting-edge performance at our literary salon to the launch of new books by classic authors, plus the festival bookstall, eating and drinking, join us from 6 – 8th March at Chapter Arts Centre.
