NORTH-West Clare Writers’ Circle have reached their fundraising target for the publication of an anthology entitled Walk With Me, the profits of which will go towards helping those suffering domestic abuse.
The anthology, which contains a wealth of contributions from authors of all kinds will be published thanks to a fund-raising campaign, which generated just over €3,000.
Shannon-born broadcaster Rachel English who supported the initiative said, “There’s some great stuff in there. As a writer myself, I can recommend it as a must-have addition to your bookshelf.”
The North West Clare Writers Circle is led by Breda Shanonn, a creative writing teacher from Corofin. She has taught all over Clare and has been involved in local writers’ groups. Their co-editor Cindy Griffin runs a bookshop in Doolin and has worked with the Doolin Writers’ Festival. Their secretary Maura Egan is from Doonbeg, their project manager Felicity Burke is from Kilnamona, their treasurer Mary Farren is from Kilrush, and public relations officer Josie O’Connor is from Ennistymon.
Members of the team will be in touch after next Monday, November 9, by email to get postal addressed and arranged pick-ups for those who pledged support.
