Alex and I met at the late, much-loved Clean Prose writers' space a few months ago, at a memoir-writing workshop taught by writer Cathy Rentzenbrink.
Alex was actually the person who broke some comedy news to me last week - that I was a nominee for the Funny Women Stage Awards 2020 - she had been in the same position last year, and she happened to see this year's announcement before I did!
On this episode, Alex tells me about her 'Dial down the feminism' artwork, which went viral on Twitter, and what that felt like. She goes into how social media helps a comedian's work these days, and how writing stand-up sets has influenced the writing of her book. She rounds off the episode with some great advice on why writers should aim to be vulnerable.
