Friday 18 June 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

We are offering this free networking event to give writers the chance to meet their international peers. This is a chance for women writers from the UK and South Africa to meet, discuss their work and issues that matter to them. The event will be facilitated by Tolu Agbelusi, who will be sharing her expertise and leading writing exercises. This is a fantastic opportunity for writers to make international connections and socialise.  


Tolu Agbelusi is the author of Locating Strongwoman (Jacaranda Books 2020). A Nigerian British poet, playwright, educator and human rights lawyer. She was shortlisted for the 2018 White Review Poetry Prize and longlisted for the Jerwood Compton Poetry Prize in 2017 and 2019.



PLEASE NOTE: This session will take place via Zoom, you will be emailed a link after booking. When you book, please let us know if you will be joining the session from the UK or South Africa by choosing the ticket type that applies to your country.

We welcome authors who identify with our aim of celebrating and supporting women’s writing in ways that reconcile with their understanding of their own gender identity. This includes trans women, non-binary and cis women writers. We do not require any statement beyond an author’s self-identification and interpret a booking or expression of interest as confirmation of that identification.
