We went to see Little Women at the very end of December 2019. I absolutely delighted in the scenes of Jo March, writer for hire, negotiating with her editor. I really enjoyed this adaptation, which played around with flashbacks and broke the fourth wall.
Like, I suspect, a lot of women who write, Jo March was an early literary heroine of mine. She writes constantly, passionately, and professionally. In this adaptation, her delight at selling her first story is infectious.
On my own writing, I started contributing to Restless magazine with a couple of pieces on women in the public sphere.
- The Power of Embracing Red is around the symbolism of the colours women wear when going into the public space. There’s some interesting history behind the symbolism, as well as psychology.
- For Set In Stone: Why We Need More Statues Of Women I interviewed three amazing female sculptors about the current trend for statues of women and why it matters.
I’ve also set up a clippings.me account to bring all my recent writing together.
My work slate is currently booked out till after Easter, after which I’ll have some writer for hire slots available. As ever, you can contact me if you’ve a commission.
