Women in Word Literary Festival

A celebration of women in word, featuring a festival reading group, in  conversation / readings from established and emerging women writers,  talks, events and workshops, poetry films by women, networking opportunities, a literary stitch event – and an evening finale in a Georgian ballroom!

As a women focused charity https://hypatia-trust.org.uk/ we have been celebrating women
writers through archive and publishing https://hypatia-trust.org.uk/publishing. It was a natural evolution in March 2022 to launch a women’s focused bookshop https://hypatia-trust.org.uk/women-in-word at our premises on Chapel St, alongside our online bookshop.

We have a commitment to advancing women’s equality and being visible, strong and collaborative – and we also like to put on fun, community events – so we have created our Women In Word Literary Festival celebrating female creatives in Cornwall. The first festival was in June 2023 and we are super happy to be coming back strong with this year’s 2024 festival.
