'Making connections: women’s writing 1918-1939' is a one-day conference which will be held at the University of Bedfordshire (Bedford campus) on 6th June 2020. 

The interwar period was a time of experimentation in form, but also a time when networks enabled new writers to form connections with each other and with the publishing community.  This conference will focus on those networks, both formal and informal, between writers and writers, and with publishers, film makers, and literary, political and artistic movements. 

Abstracts are invited for papers on women writers from the UK, from Europe and across the world who were writing and publishing between 1918 and 1939.
