IsleWrite celebrates their twentieth anniversary with the launch of their new anthology twentythirty.
Based in glorious Thanet - history-redolent and more than slightly special - IsleWrite is a group supporting writers from all walks of life, many from other countries. Some write fiction, short stories, novels and plays, some write memoirs; others prefer poetry. Each has a story to tell.
Patricia has been a proud member of this group for more than ten years.
The event will be hosted by Jill Anabona Smith.
Tickets are £5 and can be purchased in advance through Margate Bookie.
First event since lockdown!
Patricia Mahoney and Tessa Woodward were delighted to have their spoken word programme, "The Paths We Take", selected for the POWER OF WOMEN FESTIVAL 2022. It was such a joy to be able to perform to a full house with Jiggy Bhore and Jamie Moore.
Please see past events page for events prior to lockdown.
Patricia has devised a spoken word presentation of Full of Grace.
The presentation consists of Patricia reading six of the twelve stores from Full of Grace with guitarist Jamie Moore providing musical interludes. The presentation lasts 40 minutes without interval: 1 hour including a 20 minute Q & A and no interval or 75 - 90 minutes with an interval followed by a Q & A.
This spoken word event has been well received wherever it has been performed. The launch event at the Tom Thumb Theatre in Margate sold out a week in advance. Other venues have included Conquest House in Canterbury and The Jermyn Street Theatre in London's West End.
In 2017, Patricia and Jamie presented Full of Grace at the POW! Thanet Festival celebrating International Women's Day and at the Whitstable Literary Festival - in Whitstable Castle.
The Canadian premiere of Full of Grace took place in Ottawa in April 2017.
Patricia and Jamie have also been invited to attend meetings as guest speakers. On these occasions, after a brief talk, Jamie plays some instrumental music and Patricia reads one or two of her stories followed by a Q & A.
‘Patricia and Jamie have done some live performances of excerpts from the book ….
if you get the opportunity to attend one, I recommend you do.’

'Lovely presentation of her work.
Tricia is not only a great writer, using situations and words that project you back
to childhood and adolescence, but she has the ability to energise her characters in her delivery.
IsleWriters are fortunate to have such an accomplished writer in their group.
The musical accompaniment in the pauses was lyrical and gentle. Thank you!'
Joe Eddington, IsleWriter
Full of Grace Book Launch at Tom Thumb Theatre, 15 April 2016
'A magical afternoon only a few steps away from Canterbury's tourists
but it took us to another continent and another time.'

Reading / performance of Full of Grace at Conquest House, 1 May 2016.
'Patricia Mahoney's live reading of stories from Full of Grace was moving and entrancing.
Audience members in the Undercroft of Conquest House were mesmerised, each identifying in their own way with the central character of Mary Margaret. Patricia's delivery was gentle and well-measured yet there was a playful hint of impending mischief or some comical disaster just below the surface.
Original guitar music composed and played by Jamie Moore added to the over all atmosphere.
