Follow our #WomanOfTheWeek campaign to discover more about incredible women writers from around the world. Each week we will focus on a new, important woman writer and post about her and her work. We will be highlighting the lives of the well-known, groundbreaking feminist writers, as well as the, sometimes, lesser known authors. Feel free to contribute! We would love to hear your input as to which authors you want to learn more about/or perhaps teach us about.
This week’s #WomanOfTheWeek is Ece Temelkuran and she was chosen and written about by GWL Volunteer Pauline.
“One writes to create a distance between the self and the earthly reality. This need of distance mainly comes from three basic human conditions; fear, anger and the need for beauty.”
Ece Temelkuran is a Turkish journalist and author, born in 1973, who has written several novels alongside the publication of sharp and clear-sighted political analyses for a wide range of newspapers, including the Guardian, and three non-fiction books.
