Some time before starting this blog, Words and Women (http://wordsandwomennorwich.blogspot.co.uk/) held the first Words and Women Writing Competition. I’m very pleased to announce that my story “A Time for Rain” was shortlisted in the competition, and included in the forthcoming anthology.
On 8th March, the anthology was launched to celebrate International Women’s Day. Bel Greenwood and Lynne Bryan worked incredibly hard to make sure that copies were edited and printed in time, and the result looks stunning! The launch was held in Norwich, and included readings from the anthology, a showing of a film about writing spaces, and two musical performances. It was very well-attended, and at times I wondered whether the next person to come in was really going to fit through the door, but somehow we managed! All in all, a brilliant way to celebrate International Women’s Day.
And if anyone is interested, you can buy a copy of Words and Women One at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Words-Women-One-Lynne-Bryan/dp/1910061018/ I thoroughly recommend it!
