A Room of One's Own

In the RSL’s A Room of My Own anthology marking 90 years of Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own, Eley Williams concludes, ‘Have a room of your own and time to make full use of it. And when you are ready, lower a ladder down from your window, let others enjoy the space...and then, enriched and enriching, you can raise the roof.’ Eley Williams joins Elif Shafak, Kerry Hudson and Suzanne Moore to explore the conditions women writers need to thrive. Kerry Hudson has published three novels. Her most recent book, Lowborn, investigates her own past and what it means to be poor in Britain today. Suzanne Moore is a journalist and Guardian columnist. She won the Orwell Prize for Journalism in 2019. Elif Shafak is the most widely read female author in Turkey. Her novels include The Bastard of Istanbul and Three Daughters of Eve. Eley Williams’ collection of short stories, Attrib. And Other Stories, won the 2018 Republic of Consciousness Prize.
Their conversation is chaired by Claire Malcolm, Chief Executive of New Writing North.
This event is part of the Durham Book Festival.
