Kill Your Darlings and Readings join forces to present a lively discussion of the fate of women in publishing, writing and the media in the noughties. Women’s writing has been proven to be woefully under-represented in the US literary scene – what’s the situation here? What challenges do women face when forging a career in print – or when being represented in print? (For example, why the focus on female politician’s relationships and parenting status? What’s the impact of combining writing with motherhood?) KYD editor Rebecca Starford chairs a panel of formidable women in print: feminist author and commentator Monica Dux (The Great Feminist Denial), Sleepers editorial director Louise Swinn (also a contributor to KYD Issue 4) and Sophie Cunningham (past editor of Meanjin, writer, journalist)
