A Narrative of Their Own is a newsletter dedicated to celebrating the writing of 20th Century women and their influence on contemporary literature, film and culture.

This is a space to consider, discuss and reflect on great women writers and their contributions to not only the literature we love, but the way we understand life, as well as cultural and societal changes for women and men from the 20th Century to our present 21st Century lives.

Subscribers will receive a free weekly emailed newsletter discussing literary works and writers from the Modernist, Postmodernist, and Contemporary literary periods, as well as considering contemporary responses to modernist ideas, themes, and narratives.

I also delve deeper into topics that require a full series, as well as my ‘Afterthoughts’ feature, which looks at the themes behind the writing. Not forgetting my popular end of month review of great reading, writing, listening, and watching!

Paid members of my reading community are also encouraged to suggest writers, texts and themes for upcoming newsletters, as well as get access to the full archive, and occasional bonus newsletters and voice notes.

A Narrative of their Own was created by writer, reader, independent scholar and literary Modernist enthusiast Kate Jones after writing a Masters dissertation on 20th Century women’s war narratives and becoming slightly obsessed with this period of literature.
