Joanna Walsh and Isabel Waidner will be in conversation about their recent book projects, Walsh’s Break.Up (Tuskar Rock, 2018) and Waidner’s We Are Made Of Diamond Stuff (Dostoyevsky Wannabe, 2019). They will discuss the intersections of criticism, autobiography and fiction in contemporary innovative writing, genealogies of avant-garde literature in the UK, Europe and the US, and the limitations and possibilities of form expanding writing within professional publishing contexts.

This event marks the launch of Waidner’s We Are Made Of Diamond Stuff (Dostoyevsky Wannabe, 2019).

She is an Arts Foundation fellow, contributing editor at 3:AM Magazine, and the founder of #readwomen, described by the New York Times as “a rallying cry for equal treatment for women writers”.
