As part of the In My Own Words creative writing project delivered by Prime Cut Productions 10 members of WRDA were tutored by poet Nandi Jola to help bring out their creative side. The group met weekly and we have Women’s Support Network to thank for the venue. The work of several of our members has been selected for inclusion in the final anthology which was launched by the Deputy Lord Mayor of Belfast on the 7th of June in City Hall. Our members attended the event along with our Communications and Membership Worker, Megan McClure Botha. We would like to thank all our members who took part in the project and special note goes to the three women who bravely read their work at the launch, Dianne Kirby, Alex Crickmay-Snodden, and Marianne Woodcock.
