Mixing The Colours: women speaking about sectarianism

16th June, 2014 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Between November 2013 and March 2014 writer and GWL Reader In Residence Magi Gibson supported and facilitated women’s discussion and creative writing on the theme of sectarianism and how it affects women in Scotland, their families and communities.

This body of work is of particular importance being that there has been very little written by women on a subject that goes right to the heart of Scottish religious and political history.Women's story reading session

As part of the Harpies, Fechters and Quines Festival in Edinburgh GWL’s Rachel Thain-Gray and Morag Smith will read stories and poems, which brim with women – the protagonists of their own lives – who observe, feel and fight the imposition of intra-chritistian sectarianism in child- and adulthood.
