Scottish Writers' Centre
Transatlantic Literary Women Series

Tue 28 February 2017

Please join the Scottish Writers’ Centre for an event in collaboration with the University of Glasgow’s Transatlantic Literary Women Series. The evening will be hosted by poet and novelist Carolyn Jess-Cooke.

The series Cultural Connections: Transatlantic Literary Women is running in Glasgow until Summer 2017. The series explores the lives and writings of transatlantic women in all genres from the early nineteenth century to the present day. This involves a book club, conferences, and this collaboration as part of the series.

We are seeking Glasgow students to submit and read work that responds to the theme Transatlantic Literary Women. If you’re a student living in Glasgow and would like to participate, please submit the work you will be reading (maximum 5-7 minutes) to info@scottishwriterscentre.org.uk with subject heading Transatlantic Literary Women Series.

The Transatlantic Literary Women Series is co-funded by the US Embassy and the British Association for American Studies, run by University of Glasgow students and Dr. Laura Rattray, who specialises in American Literature, women’s writing and transatlanticism. More information about the Transatlantic Women Series is available here

Carolyn Jess-Cooke is a poet and novelist published in 23 languages. Her third novel will be published in 2017 by HarperCollins and is being adapted for a TV series. She is currently working on a poetry sequence on 19th-century social reformer Josephine Butler.
