Newtopia is a multimedia performance of writing emerging from women’s disrupted lives as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. It is presented by Women With Fierce Words – an inclusive collective of established women writers.
They will be joined from India by the award-winning poet, Saima Afreen. They have creatively examined this tumultuous time, its impact on their careers, family life, as well as the physical and emotional impact it has had on them.
Hear their powerful words as they weave a radical new future and join the conversation online.
