We’re gearing up for International Literature Festival Dublin this week and have asked some writers who will be passing through our doors what they’re most looking forward to – aside from their own events, of course!

Anthony Glavin is first up and has assembled a smorgasbord of what the festival has to offer with a mix of contemporary theatre, up-and-coming poets and two seasoned Irish writers:

The Only Jealousy of Emer – Yeats meets Japanese Noh theatre from 16–18 May 
Poetry Ireland Introductions – a showcase of new voices at the Irish Writers Centre on 18 & 19 May
Dermot Bolger and Christine Dwyer Hickey in conversation at Smock Alley on 24 May

Anthony is also facilitating a Craft of Fiction seminar along with Christine Montalbetti this Saturday 16 May. Aimed at seasoned writers and curious readers, Glavin will look at ‘Sychronicity as a Dimension of Beauty: The Role Chance Plays in the Stories We Tell’ and Montalbetti will delve into ‘Digression’.
