Joanna Foat is Dean Writers Circle’s guest for their 31st May Fifth Wednesday event, themed ‘Women in the Forest’.
Joanna is the author of two books relating to the role of lumberjills in the UK. The first, Lumberjills: The Forgotten Army, explores the history of The Women's Timber Corps in the Second World War. In 2022, Joanna released her novel, The Lumberjills, Stronger Together, set in the Forest of Dean, where women trained at the Parkend Forestry Training School.
After Joanna’s talk, DWC members will read their pieces in prose and poetry to celebrate Women in the Forest. A full evening!
