Megan Nolan considers herself to be more of a writer than an artist, and has written many stories which can be considered confessional, although she denied that they are confessional. The main topics she covers are sexual relationships with men, and in one of the stories she read it gave the impression of suicide.
‘I hurt myself to hurt them’
She fights the idea of confessional writing because it is only considered confessional if it’s written by a woman, if written by a man it is considered a factual article. I like her stance on this and I do agree that female journalists aren’t taken as seriously as male journalists.
Although her work doesn’t connect to mine at all, I do admire what she’s doing and I did find the talk interesting.
