Women Aloud NI 2017

wani 17 side barWe’re thrilled to announce our programme of events for Women Aloud NI 2017! Building on last year’s successwe’ll be running a series of literary events to celebrate International Women’s Day and to help raise the profile of women writers based in Northern Ireland or from Northern Ireland.

Since last year, our community of 130 women writers has grown to an incredible 250. We’re still as diverse and as inclusive as ever, and it’s been wonderful for us to be able to network with each other and support each other over the last 12 months.

This year, we’ll be starting our events a day early on the 7th March [it’s always good to have a warm-up 🙂 ] and finishing our events on the 11th March [it’s always good to make the fun last as long as possible 🙂 ]. There are 12 events taking place in Northern Ireland [11 on the 8th March, International Women’s Day]. On 11th March, 50 of us will be travelling down to the Irish Writers Centre in Dublin to celebrate International Women’s Day with women writers resident in the Republic of Ireland.

There’s Just A Week To Go!

With only a week to go until Women Aloud NI 2016, we’re busy making final preparations. A quick tot up of numbers took our breath away : 130 women writers will be taking part on the day! [Yeah. 130. That’s a lot of women writers, right?!] With 15 events happening in Northern Ireland on 08 March [and events in Scotland and Spain too], there’s plenty on offer. We hope that you can join us at one of our events and help us to celebrate our work and our vibrant community.
