Generation Women celebrates and amplifies women’s voices and creativity. Each month, six women of note read an original piece on a theme. Of those women, one is in her 20s, her 30s, her 40s, her 50s, her 60s, and her 70s+. Our diverse line-ups will make you laugh, cry, and think. Generation Women is a unique, intimate literary salon that brings together women of all ages.

NEXT SHOW: February 27th 2020

THEME: Red Hot Australian Summer: Stories of Summer Lovin’
It’s hot out. And that means we want to hear Stories of Summer Lovin’. This month, we’ve invited our all-star line-up to tell us a sexy story … or an attempt at sexy that went off the rails. A story set in summertime or somewhere equally hot. A tale about someone or something that they love, desire, or lust after. We know you love hearing about female desire —bring your libido as your plus one, as you join us this February for a steamy night of hot and heavy multi-generational storytelling.


Team 20s: Robyn Reynolds (UK) snagged a sexy little Best Comedy nomination for her sold-out debut at Sydney Fringe 2019. Despite this, she remains gorgeously humble. Robyn encourages you to embrace your inner creep and follow her socials.

Team 30s: Yemi Penn is an Engineer by profession and an Entrepreneur by passion, living what she preaches as a transformation coach. Yemi is self made, despite the obligatory ‘f**k ups’ in life. She manages 3 successful businesses whilst mothering her two children.

In 2005, she established ‘Storytelling off the Page,’ performing adaptations of well-loved stories throughout NSW. Lisa is a single mother, raising her daughter on her own since she was born.

Team 60s: Gina Mitchell is a certified life coach and NLP practitioner. Her niche is coaching women over 40. She wrote a #1 best-selling book called ‘Ignite the Spark’.
