Let’s Talk About… Jealousy among Writers

What is the difference between jealousy, envy and admiration? Are we more likely to envy those with talent or those with luck? Is everyone jealous and, if not, when does jealousy begin? This session looks at both the experience of jealousy and its practical side, considering ways in which we can process and negate the emotion or transform it into an advantage, using it in our work.


  • When: Tuesday 6 August, 6.30–8pm
  • Where: Online
  • With: With Robyn Dennison, Thabani Tshuma and moderated by Anna Kate Blair
