Girls Write Up web photo

How often are young women constrained by their gender? What if they had the confidence to speak (or write) up against derisive and discriminatory language?

Okay, I feel so strongly about this. I’m fiercely proud to be a part of this program. The details of my session are below. But please take a look at the program and tell me that that isn’t the most exciting line-up of speakers and workshops and panels you’ve ever seen (Clementine Ford. Emily Maguire. These women are my SUPER HEROES). I can’t wait. I want to go to everything. I want the world to change. I want YOU to find your VOICE. Please come.

Girls Write Up Day

Tuesday 21 June 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM

The Radical Act of Writing Women

Type: Panel   |  Kirsty Eagar, Emily Maguire, Fiona Wright – hosted by Bec Kavanagh

Are women’s stories for women only? Writing about women can be a radical act against the male-dominated literary canon. These three artists will each present a 5–10 minute piece that demonstrates how this is true for them. This will be followed by a short panel discussion.

Hello! I recently did an interview with Brisbane News Magazine, talking about Summer Skin, female sexuality and my time at UQ. You can read the full thing here.

Brisbane News Magazine full

The journo who wrote this, Jodie Munro O’Brien, was fantastic, and I hope more Oz YA authors get the chance to talk to her. Seeing the photo felt a bit weird, though, because I wouldn’t pick that person out in a line-up as being me – apart from the surfer shoulders. (Don’t think I’m being body-negative – I’m not. I like having big shoulders and lats thanks to surfing. I take comfort from knowing that if ever I was dressed in a strapless evening dress – my idea of hell – I would bust out of that shit like the Hulk). Me and dresses generally – just no. I was wearing a different one when I got there, carefully chosen, and the photographer said, “So when you get changed we’ll get started”*. Always what you want to hear :) Luckily I had that one balled up in the back of my car, stinky and dank with stale sea water.

*I don’t mean he was being rude, more that I have NO IDEA how to dress for such things. This is the second time this has happened with a photographer.

Because I used to have a pair of these, and they were the bomb.
