Irish Writers Centre & Banshee Journal invite you to join us on 6 January for our annual celebration of Nollaig na mBan!

Broadcaster and journalist Sinéad Gleeson will MC this special evening of entertainment, with contributions from writers Grace Dyas, Alison Spittle, Nuala O’Connor, Éilís Ní Dhuibhne and Anna Carey alongside music from the magnificent Loah. 

We’ll have a host of talent from Banshee Journal, the WORD group will lead a tribute to women writers who have died and on, this day of rest, our Soapbox writers will ruminate on why there’s ‘no rest for the wicked’.

As in previous years, we’re encouraging those attending to take part in a New Year’s Kris Kindle extravaganza. Bring along a much-loved book by a female writer, wrap it and label or tag it with a description of no more than three lines. If you bring a book, you go home with one too!

* Ticket price includes a complimentary glass of wine and any profit will go towards the development of IWC programmes.
