I received word on the following event in the Irish Writer’s Centre tonight if you are in Dublin.
From the success of the Night of Women’s Prose 2010, as part of the week of celebration for the 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day, The Night of Women’s Prose 2011 will take place from 7:30, March 9th in the Irish Writers Centre, Dublin. The night is supported by the Irish Writers Centre and the Centre for Gender and Women’s Studies, Trinity College Dublin.The pieces selected have been chosen from an open call, advertised across Dublin, for unpublished prose by woman writers. The night will offer an eclectic mix of women’s writing with themes of lust, violence, motherhood and the ever changing face of life in Ireland. It is a celebration of woman’s voice in Ireland. The night’s proceeds will go to Aki DWA – African Women’s Network of Ireland- who will be reading an excerpt from ‘Herstory’.
The event is open admission, with a charity raffle on the night sponsored by Orla Kiely.
