Women Aloud Mass reading
This happened on 11th March at the Irish Writers Centre in Dublin. 80 woman writers came together from the north and south of Ireland. First a readathon, reading for five minutes each, all day.
Then we went out to the Garden of Remembrance and performed a mass-reading, which, if you listen to it sounds a bit like the cacophony of a hen farm, but the joy of doing it surpassed anything I had expected.
This collaboration, to celebrate women writers in the week of International Women's Day is now short-listed for the Sabotage Awards 2017 as best Collaborative Work. Voting is open till the end of the month. Fingers crossed, but I'm in two minds about it. Why? Read it in my next blog.
