Irish Writers Centre Workshops

The Irish Writers Centre is paying homage to The Country Girls Trilogy and 1950s Ireland with bespoke offerings arising from themes in the books. Workshops will cover: researching social history for authentic writing about a period, or: giving literary voice to marginalised groups. Others will explore developing a character over time and into book sequels and the tricky task of writing sensual stories with the uncompromising flair of Edna O’Brien. Finally, we present a panel discussion focusing on class and urban/rural divides in Irish society, which are so evident in O’Brien’s writing – how do they manifest in Irish literature in 2019?  

Featuring some of our most acclaimed Irish writers including Catherine Dunne, Dermot Bolger and Colm Keegan these free events are taking place in the Irish Writers Centre.
