Wendy Cope, Making a Murderer, What is a feminist novel in the 21st century?
Wendy Cope talks about poetry writing and her new book of prose writings, Life, Love and The Archers. Plus a new report has just come out on trafficking women with children.
Wendy Cope is one of Britain's bestselling contemporary poets but she is also a prose writer and her most recent book is Life, Love and the Archers. She talks to Jane about performing, writing poetry, her latest book, and the role of the Poet Laureate.
A new report by the Anti-Trafficking Monitoring Group says women who are trafficked to the UK with their children are being systematically overlooked by the UK authorities.
Making A Murderer is the critically acclaimed Netflix TV documentary series that follows the trial of Steven Avery who wrongly served 18 years for rape but was then convicted of murder. Jane talks to the writers and directors of the show.
Jane talks to Lynn Nottage, 38th winner of the prestigious Susan Smith Blackburn prize for women playwrights.
