The Split-Lit festival ("Celebrating Women's Writing") starts Thursday 2nd March at the oh! art centre, Oxford House, Derbyshire Street, E2 and other London venues (via Jai):
This highly accessible literary festival explores issues and ideas with a diverse international line-up of novelists, journalists, broadcasters, poets, playwrights, comics, artists and musicians. Coinciding with International Women's Week the programme presents writers from across the globe ... The Festival celebrates new writing and independent publishers with writers whose imaginations will challenge and inspire and publishers who give opportunities to writers who deserve the light. The programme includes discussions and debates, readings, talks, performances, exhibitions and workshops, the International Women's Day Lunch and a rip-roaring Comedy Night.
