Love these ideas and this direction, Kate.

It might be interesting to also consider the pandemic specifically and its impact on women writers (ie with home schooling). Zadie Smith wrote some beautiful essays on this time (I am looking forward to her new book that just came out). It might not be specific to women, as I imagine most of the writers - men or women - would have been responsible for the children at that time? Not sure. It was a kind of 'war' like other time periods you discuss.

Fantastic post, I love this idea of delving a little deeper in a second newsletter. It’s fascinating to see what people thought of Tillie Olsen. We expect a lot of our icons, but we have to accept that they are still people with flaws - so it’s interesting to learn that Olsen made up a lot of her life experiences. This is a great discussion :)

I love the idea of ‘afterthoughts’, Kate. What a great way to nurture the ANOTO community!

This is a great nudge in what you have written about what I should be reading to expand myself.
