plot twist is a literary collective aiming to facilitate alternative learning and sharing among womxn.

Through a series of monthly gatherings we critically reflect on themes intimately tied to our everyday lives—friendship, motherhood, technology, work—and consider how these manifest in works of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, essays and films. plot twist encourages active engagement with texts, looking beyond the limits of the page to consider how we negotiate ourselves within today’s patriarchal structures.
