The domestic, the interior and the personal have traditionally been relegated to the realm of women’s writing, which in recent years has been dismissed as too small to attract significant readership, critical acclaim and writing awards. Our panelists look beyond the censure and speak out in praise of the domestic.

Ranah domestik, lingkup dalam, dan hal yang personal secara tradisional terdegradasi ke ranah penulisan wanita, yang dalam beberapa tahun terakhir dianggap terlalu kecil untuk menarik minat pembaca, penghargaan kritis, dan penghargaan penulisan yang signifikan. Panelis kami melihat lebih jauh kecaman dan menuturkan pujian akan ranah domestik ini.
