I recently reviewed Plays 1 (the collection of Sarah Daniels’s plays, which I mentioned a few months ago on this blog) for the Postgraduate Contemporary Women’s Writing Network. The short article is published in their newsletter; for those of you not subscribed to their mailing list, a .pdf of the newsletter/magazine can be downloaded here. I really enjoyed Dr. Helen Davies’s piece on being an early career researcher, also included in the PG CWWN’s latest.
