Kiri Bloom Walden

Working Writing Woman Whinge Workshop

Hay Festival 2023, 

Drawing on her own experience as an author of three books, with two children and juggling three jobs, Kiri Bloom Walden talks about the difficulties faced by women trying to bring up a family and live a fulfilled created life. Bringing in historic examples, Walden explores the history of creative working mothers, and offers strategies for how to keep all the balls in the air and fulfil your creative ambitions without having to wait until the children are old enough to leave home. Walden is a part-time tutor at the University of Oxford’s Department of Continuing Education.
