About Event Studies show that publishing and literature is still awash with blatant gender bias, with women writers only leading in the Romance Novel genre. How do we tackle the assumptions of women’s literary output and celebrate the work of women writers across the board? This issue is systemic within our society with over 400,000 children recorded as not owning any books. How can we support children's access to literature and elevate the authorial voice of women?

She previously worked at Dazed Beauty and Milk Makeup, and completed an Mst in Creative Writing at Cambridge University. Agenda Full line-up TBC.
