Comprising a rapid-fire readathon and a simultaneous mass reading, this event is a wonderful opportunity to get a sense of the extraordinary diversity and richness of the women’s writing scene in the North. It’s also a lovely way to get to know the names of some of our finest emerging and established female writers.

The list of readers includes: Jane Talbot, Felicity McCall, DJ McCune, Anne McMaster, Belinda Bennetts, Ellie Rose McKee, Sarah McMahon, Trish Bennett, Eibhlinn McAleer, Kelly Creighton, Tara West, Jo Zebedee, Maura Johnston, Nuala McAllister, Pauline Burgess, Helen Hastings, Vicky McFarland, Jenny Methven, Ev McLaughlin, Gaynor Kane, Annemarie Mullan, Lesley Allen, Helen Nicholl, Eimear O’Callaghan, Dominique Hoffman, Catriona King, Hilary McCollum, Caroline Johnstone, Dianne Ascroft, Valerie Christie, Lunatari Stargazer, Mary Montague, Elizabeth McGeown, Olive Broderick, Wilma Kenny, Stephanie Conn, Emma McKervey, Shirley-Anne McMillan, JS Comiskey, Rosemary Morrison, Seanín Hughes ….. and more!
