This showcase is dedicated to women’s writing, with guest poets and performers Bidisha, Holly Corfield Carr and Tania Hershmann to celebrate Women’s History Month.


Join Sian Norris in recreating the salon scene of 1920s Paris through a series of showcase events. Norris shares the work she has created during her residency before inviting guest writers and performers to take to the stage. Attendees also have the opportunity to share their own work during an open mic session at each event.

Sian Norris is writer-in-residence at Spike Island (3 January to 30 April 2017), developing a new novel and running a series of workshops and literary events.
