Episode 5: Food Writing, Getting Strange and Women in Print
With the year drawing to a close, it’s time to catch up on the final few months of 2019 with Dear Damsels.
This episode, we’re discussing our most recent themes (STRANGE, FEAST and CELEBRATION), and talking about the changing landscape of women’s voices in the media. We’re also delighted to welcome Jennifer Cerys onto the podcast to tell us all about Lemon House Theatre.
This episode, we kick off with the words of Margaret Atwood:
“A word, after a word, after a word, is power.”
– Margaret Atwood
