Feminist Writers Festival to close

After hosting over 163 speakers and creating space for feminist writers and thinkers, the Feminist Writers Festival will close its doors due to funding constraints.

Tackling contemporary events from a feminist standpoint since its creation in 2016, the Feminist Writers Festival has announced its closure, citing a lack of resources and funding as the primary reason for the decision.

‘We are disappointed to announce that we are making the incredibly sad but necessary decision to close Feminist Writers Festival (FWF). Having made it through “COVID year” and delivering a virtual festival in 2020, this feels particularly tragic. But the resourcing required to push through an (ongoing) precarious situation is too much,’ a statement from the Feminist Writers Festival read.
