Bow Street Screening

A screening was held in Bow Street on Friday 3rd July 2015 of seven shorts films scripted by writers from Fighting Words. The group met with the teenage actors and directors in Bow Street and wrote short scenes for the cast, which were then filmed and edited. Congratulations to all who took part in this great collaboration!

Brain Storms launch

“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.

Brain Storms was launched at CBC Monkstown Park, Dún Laoghaire on Monday 18th May 2015.
