Hay-on-Wye, Powys, Wales

We are thrilled to be partnering with Women in Journalism to host a fascinating event at this year’s Hay Festival.

Event 344: The Effect of Gender Bias in Publishing

Is the publishing sector gender-biased?

Do men read more male than female writers?

Do reviewers review more books by male writers?

Or are women currently getting more opportunities than male novelists?

Join the debate with Dorothy Koomson, novelist and 2022 Women’s Prize judge, Kate Mosse, novelist and Founder Director of the Women’s Prize for Fiction, and Mary Ann Sieghart, journalist, author of The Authority Gap and this year’s chair of the Women’s Prize for Fiction judges. They talk to author, broadcaster and Women in Journalism Deputy Chair Genelle Aldred.
