Writing Dark Chapter: Surviving Sexual Violence & Advocating for Change
Sexual Violence and Abuse Awareness Week
Winnie M Li

Winnie M Li is an author and activist. Her debut novel, DARK CHAPTER, is winner of The Guardian's Not The Booker Prize 2017 and will be translated into eight languages worldwide. Partly inspired by her own assault, it explores a rape from the perspective of both victim and perpetrator. A Harvard graduate, Winnie is now Co-Founder and Artistic Director of the Clear Lines Festival, the UK's first-ever festival addressing sexual assault and consent through the arts and discussion. She is also a PhD researcher at the London School of Economics, researching the uses of social media by rape survivors to share their experiences and form a community. Winnie has appeared in The Guardian, The Mail on Sunday, The Times, The Independent, The Irish Times, BBC World News, BBC Woman's Hour, and RTE Radio One, among other media outlets.

Snacks and drinks will be provided.
