Sam George-Allen’s new book, Witches: What Women Do Together, is about formidable female collaborations. Kate Richards’s poetic debut novel, Fusion, tells the story of conjoined twins. Alice Robinson’s The Glad Shout explores motherhood and the struggles women face in difficult times, and Sophie Tegan Gardiner’s piece is a work of fiction called ‘Good Milk’ from the most recent issue of Voiceworks, ‘Flare’.
Hear four very talented and very different writers read from their new work. What do women want? How do they survive? And how do they work together to make magic happen?
