Wales Arts Review Writers' Rooms: Zoë Brigley

For the latest in Wales Arts Review's Writers’ Rooms series, poet, essayist and academic Zoë Brigley invites us into her workspace in her home in Ohio.

'It is so important for mothers to have a “room of one’s own.” But it’s unrealistic to think that this space will ever be entirely free of children, nor would I want it to be. I often find people asking me about the “pram in the hall” problem for writers who are mothers, but I don’t feel worse for having my children be part of my writing life. In fact, they have made me sharper, stronger, more organised, and as a writer, I am more compassionate, more empathetic, more tender.'
