Bristol Women’s Literature Festival team up with Handheld Press and Bristol Festival of Ideas for a special, one-off event before the main festival programme in March to celebrate women in science fiction and fantasy.

An evening celebrating female geekery and science fiction creativity, with four exceptional writers and critics of sff: Emma Geen, Cheryl Morgan (pictured), Emma Newman and Liz Williams. In conversation with Kate Macdonald of Handheld Press, they will unknot the bonds of unknowing to illuminate the best of feminist sff:

– the writers we can’t stop reading

– the writers and artists you need to know about

– the struggles of the women in sff who came before us

– what we can all do to support the new generations of sff women
