During October and November women writers will be submitting short stories and poems for our third annual Dragon’s Pen event. Come and hear the shortlisted writers read their stories in front of our panel of tame but talented dragons including published writers and Women’s Library staff. Don’t worry – their aim is to support and encourage all writers, rather than roast them over a slow flame. Part of our Book Week Scotland programme, sponsored by the Scottish Book Trust.
