Women Aloud NI present: Voice, Choice, Rejoice
A showcase of poetry and prose from members of Women Aloud NI with Réaltán Ní Leannáin as Chairperson.
Please join Women Aloud NI as they raise their writerly voices to tell you stories of choices that they, or their characters, face. Will the outcome find them rejoicing? Come along to find out!
Réaltán Ní Leannáin:
Réaltán was born and reared in St James’s here in Belfast. 'I started writing and it came out in Irish. Even now, if some stories start with a few sentences in English, I find that I turn to Irish at a very early stage.' She believes that the language creates a context and a shared set of cultural experiences.
'The stories in Dílis especially reflect this aspect of crafting stories. Every language has its own set of nuances, and if we change the language we change the piece.' Réaltán is also the writer in residence in DCU (Dublin City University).
