Episode 65: Secret sisterhoods & female literary friendships with Emily Midorikawa and Emma Claire Sweeney

In this week's episode, we have the special privilege of having one but two guests - writers and friends Emily Midorikawa and Emma Claire Sweeney. Emily and Emma are the co-authors of A Secret Sisterhood: The literary friendships of Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, George Eliot and Virginia Woolf. They also co-run the fantastic blog about female literary friendship and collaboration,

Emma is the author of the award-winning novel Owl Song at Dawn, and Emily is a winner of the Lucy Cavendish Fiction Prize, and they both teach at New York University London.

We loved talking to them about how to tackle a big project and stay friends, as well as how literary women have always managed ambition and jealousy in their friendships - and how Emma and Emily have dealt with these things. We loved talking to these honest, smart and literary women.


You can find Emily at her website, Instagram or Twitter. You can contact Emma from her website or on Twitter.
