Lots of press to talk about

With the festival just around the corner (two weeks tomorrow!) we’re starting to get more and more press for the event.

Today The F Word has a guest post from us so please leave a comment about how excited you are to come along. Leeds Book Club is running a series of blogposts reviewing books by our speakers on the Women Writing Today panel. There’ll be a feature about the festival in this month’s Folio magazine and in this quarter’s Mslexia magazine too. Yesterday I spoke to Bristol Community FM for their International Women’s Day programmes next Friday and later on I’m meeting Guide 2 Bristol to talk about what to expect over the festival weekend.

Exciting times!

If you would like to talk to us about the festival or if you have any press links you want to share then make sure you get in touch!

And if you haven’t bought your tickets to the festival yet, then head across to the Watershed and book today.

Update – you do one press round up and then another piece appears! Here’s Leeds Book Club on Petite Mort by Beatrice Hitchman.
