An Evening with Guernica: Bravery and Gender in “Confessional Writing”

Why are confessional narratives penned by female writers so often deemed “brave,” “sticky,” or “opportunistic,” when the same material addressed by male writers is called by its name: art? Join Guernica magazine to confess, grieve, or take jabs at the glaring double-standard in how personal writing is consumed, marketed, and reviewed today.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Jewish History, The Writer’s Foundry at St. Joseph’s College, Brooklyn, NY, Guernica, and the Polish Cultural Institute New York.
