Aw, too short notice for me... blub, blub, blub... best of luck on the night. Good to see Arlen going from strength to strength

PJ Nolan said...

Sounds good. Do you know if all 4 poets will be reading?

Women Rule Writer said...

Hi PJ, to the best of my knowledge, all 4 will read. I am certainly writing my launch speech with the idea that they will all be there to share some work.
maybe see you there?

PJ Nolan said...

Aye, I might very well make it along there. cheers.

Vanessa Gebbie said...

I have Pat Cotter's collection... it is moving, lovely work.

Women Rule Writer said...

It is, isn't it V? And sexy too! Ooooh!

Emerging Writer said...

Have to miss it too. Sos. A Sexy collection sounds inviting.

Emerging Writer said...

Me again. I meant to ask, who are Arlen House exactly?

Women Rule Writer said...

Arlen House are a Galway based publisher, started as a feminist press in 1975 by Catherine Rose and re-launched in 2000 by Alan Hayes. They published early Eavan Boland and these days Pauline Bewick's art books, amongst many others.
They have published all 4 of my books. They publish poetry, short fiction and academic titles.
They don't have a website but Alan's contact details are available from Clé.

Hi WRW, I know this is off topic, but I just wanted to tell you that you can apply to join the Feminist Open Forum google group if you want updates on what's going on. It's at I think. Let me know if you have any problems.
