You can book your tickets now for this event to launch a new collaborative publication produced by Hillsborough Castle and Gardens and The John Hewitt Society. Five prominent Northern Ireland based writers have been commissioned to respond to five historical figures from Hillsborough’s past and have created new pieces of writing to animate the lives of these former residents. The publication also includes additional contributions by participants from a range of community groups who took part in workshops with the writers. The launch will include readings from each of the writers and a selection of readings by community participants. The writers included are: Jan Carson, Emily DeDakis, Maeve O’Lynn, Ian Sansom and Myra Zepf.
I will be working with Atlas Women's Centre in Lisburn on bringing together an epistolary-inspired narrative based on the life of Lady Alice Maria Hill.
This project is supported by Heritage Lottery Fund and Community Relations Council. We would like to thank the Institute for Conflict Research for their support for this project.
