Congratulations to the writers who took part in a Reading this week, in the beautiful setting of the Chapel Royale, Dublin Castle. The group worked with Caoimhe Creed over the past four months and presented a selection of fiction, non-fiction and song. It was a fantastic evening!
A screening was held in Bow Street on Friday 3rd July 2015 of seven shorts films scripted by writers from Fighting Words.

“This is a fantastic collection and it’s one to be savoured – don’t gorge on all the stories at once, spread them out over a long while, like delicacies.
I think we’ll be hearing from many of these new voices again and again and again.” Kevin Barry from the introduction to the anthology.
