Call for female writers and performers for International Women’s Day 2018

La Banshee, Central Library, Liverpool, L3, 8 March

La Banshee, Liverpool-based Theatre & Production Company dedicated to empowering women, will be holding an event on International Women’s Day on 8th March 2018 at Central Library to celebrate women’s bodies!

They are inviting all the women of Liverpool and beyond, of all ages, to celebrate and own their body by writing and submitting a text about it. That text could take the form of an anecdote, a poem, thoughts etc. It could be a reflection around the female body in general, tell about your own relationship with your body or be about a specific part of your body that you share a history with, that you cherish, that you would like to celebrate or just talk about because you can and want to!

The submitted texts will then be read out anonymously during a sharing that will take place on International Women’s Day on 8th March 2018 at Central Library in Liverpool. For this part, we are also seeking female performers/confident readers, of all ages and of all body shapes, who would be willing to deliver a reading of the texts selected. If you are interested in taking part as a reader, please get in touch for more information and send us a short introduction highlighting any relevant work. (Please note that everyone involved in this event is taking part on a voluntary basis.)

Please submit your text along with the following information: Name, age and email address. Your data will only be used for administrative purposes and rest assured that your text will be treated with the utmost care by La Banshee and that all the texts will remain anonymous at the sharing. Feel free to submit more than one text! All texts should be sent to the following address:

Any question, just get in touch. They look forward to reading your text and to you celebrating your body!
