Fired! reading in Ó Bhéal
School of English PhD candidate Kathy D’Arcy is hosting a Fired! reading in Ó Bhéal on Monday Jan 22nd with poets Chris Murray (founder of the Poethead blog), Raina Leon, Nicola Moffat. Fired! aims to fight gender imbalance in Irish poetry and involves readings, discussion and a pledge to withdraw from literary events where good faith attempts at gender balance have not been made (awomanpoetspledge.com)
