Our two wonderful speakers this year were Jane Garvey the Woman’s Hour presenter, and Rachel Kelly author of a best-selling memoir Black Rainbow, in which she describes how poetry helped her overcome depression. Over 200 women enjoyed a delicious lunch in the historic dining hall at Balliol College, Oxford while listening to two entertaining and inspiring speakers.


We are so grateful to Balliol for hosting us so beautifully and to the committee Caroline de Jäger, Kate Ehrman, Jean Flemming, Nicky Forsythe, Caroline Laing, and Laura Sednaoui for all their wonderful work before, during and after the event.
