Newcomers and Visiting Scholars




Around the World with Women Writers is a participant led lively and friendly international forum for those who are interested in women writers from around the world.  The group comes together on selected Fridays via Zoom to discuss the texts they have read, sharing opinions and thoughts. The discussions are conducted in English. Over the past year they have hosted the international poets Jennifer Harrison, Sandra Beasley, Judith Nangala Crispin, Senem Gokel, Michelle Meredyth-Stewart, Eftychia Stamatopoulou amongst many others.  This is a great way to connect with others who share a love of reading and a wonderful opportunity to see things from another perspective.
