Jess Orr, Co-producer of Paisley Book Festival, added: “To have Kirsty Wark on the bill for the inaugural Paisley Book Festival is hugely exciting for us, given her success not only as a creative writer, but also her diverse experience working in journalism and broadcasting.
“We hope that her insights into a sector which can be ruthless – especially for women – will form an invaluable part of a festival with radical and rebellious themes at its core. We are delighted to be partnering with UWS and the Inspiring Women series to stage this unmissable conversation.”
Over the past two years, UWS has welcomed more than 1,300 delegates to participate in the Inspiring Women programme, including its annual conference, most recently in June 2019. More than 130 guests heard from a selection of keynote speakers, including NASA representative Sarah Murray, Barclays Director Ron Coghill, Paralympic champion Karen Darke BME, and genocide survivor Taban Shoresh, followed by the opportunity to take part in free workshops designed to enhance confidence, communication and creativity.
Tickets for the UWS Inspiring Women Paisley Book Festival event cost £12 or £5 (concession). Book your tickets and find out more about Paisley Book Festival at paisleybookfest.com.
