Women Writers from the North of Ireland
October 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10
Short fiction is having a remarkable moment in Northern Ireland, with a boom in women’s writing. Sinéad Gleeson edited the successful collection of Irish women writers, The Long Gaze Back, and then turned her editorial attention to Northern women, after observing that little existed in terms of all-female anthologies in the North.
Gleeson, a writer, journalist and presenter of “The Book Show” on Ireland’s Radio Telefís Eireann (RTE). Sinéad is joined by Jan Carson and Evelyn Conlon, contributors to the anthology.
“The Glass Shore: Short Stories by Women Writers from the North of Ireland …one of the most multilayered and thought-provoking collections of stories I’ve read in a long while.” Elizabeth Day, The Irish Times
