The Stella Prize’s Girls Write Up: On Writing the Body [Panel]

This past May/June, I was lucky enough to take part in a roundtable conversation on the intersections and relations of writing and the body for the Stella Prize‘s fantastic initiative Girls Write Up. The panel (A Conversation: On Writing The Body) discussed how we create and categorise bodies through language, and considered the (ethical and moral) role of the writer in this process.

It was a privilege to work with two other incredibly talented and eloquent writers on this panel, and it was also wonderful to share our ideas with the school kids who came, and for us to learn from their experiences through their insightful and thought-provoking questions.
