The launch of Womanswrite's first collection was an enjoyable event, with some fine readings by contributors and guest appearances by Cathy Bolton (poet and director of Manchester Literary Festival) and Cath Staincliffe (her first novel Looking For Trouble was published by Crocus in 1994 and she's gone on to write 13 more since then) both of whom attended Womanswrite way way way (is that too many ways?) back in the mists of time.

Thanks to Almira Holmes for all the hard work she put in, getting the collection off the ground.
