Does the easy online accessibility of pornography pose a threat to young people? Does it stand in the way of developing a healthy attitude to love and sex, or does it provide useful information for beginners? These panels bring together writers with wide-ranging interests in sex and sexuality for a full and frank discussion.


Curated by novelist Julia Crouch, The SICK! literature strand brings together diverse panels of authors who have addressed the issues considered in each event through their writing – be it fiction, graphic novels, academic writing or memoir.  Expect the discussions to be wide-ranging, encompassing personal experience, theory and imagination.
