Our week of celebrations for International Women's Day has kicked off with Print To The People putting up their exhibition in response to the winning stories from our 2016/17 prose competition in Nunns Yard Gallery, St Augustines Street, Norwich. The exhibition will be open tomorrow from 11.00am - 4.30pm. At noon  tomorrow in Nunns Yard Elizabeth Strothers will read Suite For My Father by Melissa Fu, the regional winner of our competition.

Clare Jarrett is also responding to one of the winning stories - Deborah Arnander's The Wife - by shaping an installation over the next few days in Gallery 13A which is just down the road from Nunns Yard.
