Triskele Tuesday #womeninfiction

On #Triskeletuesday, the Triskele team meet on Twitter for an hour (19.30GMT) every fortnight to discuss a current issue on the literature/publishing scene.

If you’ve not participated in one of our Twitchats before, simply search for #triskeletuesday and join in. All opinions welcome.

On Tuesday 8th March, to celebrate #InternationalWomensDay, the Triskele Twitchat tackled #womeninfiction.

We discussed some popular female writers who both broke and set boundaries ...

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.
A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.
You cannot find peace by avoiding life ... Virginia Woolf

Women characters we aspire to be like or relate to...

ENID BLYTON ... childhood favourite of so many readers (and authors).

 And some recent new discoveries…

So, to summarise, we evoked some old and some new favourites. We discussed female writers and characters who have shaped our own writing and reading, and possibly, our lives.

Next #triskeletuesday twitchat will be on 22nd March, writer-orientated, and on the subject of book covers. #bookcovers
