2019 Welcome Post

2019: New Year, New Start

Dear All,

Recently, things have been a little quiet on here because we have been busy handing over roles to the new members, however we are currently in the process of planning some exciting events for the coming year! Firstly, we would like to say a big thank you to Emma Parker and Fiona Martinez-Mancz who have done a wonderful job with the pgcwwn and we wish them every success in their future! Secondly, we have two new members Jade and Olivia who have joined the pgcwwn alongside Isabelle and you can learn more about the group on the Steering Group page. We are currently in the process of planning the 2019 biennial conference and more information will be posted about this in the next few months so keep your eyes peeled! All information will be posted on our website, Facebook and twitter pages however we would also encourage you to sign up to our newsletter by emailing us at info@pgcwwn.org

The Postgraduate Contemporary Women’s Writing Network is also looking for short articles, reviews and interviews to feature on its website, which celebrates and promotes the study of modern female writers. We warmly invite postgraduate students, at all levels, to approach us with ideas for short pieces, of roughly 600-1500 words, on any aspect of contemporary women’s literature, both in the UK and abroad.

We are open to suggestions but authors for consideration might include Jackie Kay, Rupi Kaur, Zadie Smith, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Hilary Mantel, Andrea Levy, Toni Morrison, Ursula K Le Guin, Margaret Atwood, Alice Munro, Maya Angelou, Jhumpa Lahiri, Barbara Kingsolver and Elena Ferrante.

If you have a idea for piece, a first draft, or are just curious to find out more, please contact Isabelle at info@pgcwwn.org

We look forward to hearing from you and are excited to meet some of you at our future event!

All best wishes,

Isabelle, Jade and Olivia.
-Steering Committee, The Postgraduate Contemporary Women’s Writing Network
