To mark the Library’s 21st anniversary GWL commissioned 21 women writers and 21 women artists to create new work inspired by items and artefacts in our collections. The resulting fine art prints, poems and creative writing have been brought together with the sources that inspired the work in a beautiful, lushly illustrated book that was launched on International Women’s Day, 8th March 2014, and is available to order now.
In the 21 Revolutions Writers Podcast series, the writers read their work and talk about the inspiration behind each new piece. The podcasts are being released monthly, and are available on our website in the 21 Revolutions Podcast page. You can also subscribe to the podcast feed here, or through iTunes.
