Announcing Ciara Ní É as an Irish Writers Centre Ambassador
We’re delighted to announce Ciara Ní É as a new Irish Writers Centre Ambassador!
Dubliner Ciara Ní É is the founder of REIC, a monthly bilingual spoken word and open mic night that features poetry, music, storytelling and rap. She has performed her work in Ireland and internationally. She has been published in a variety of journals including Icarus and Comhar, and in 2018 she released a series of 4 poetry videos in partnership with the Irish Writers Centre.
Ciara’s commissions include UNESCO’s Dublin City of Literature video 2015, and a poem for Seó Beo Pheil na mBan on TG4, which received more than 300,000 views online.
We’re fortunate to have exceptional Ambassadors in Eilis Ni Dhuibhne, Anne Enright, Mike McCormack, John Banville, Marian Keyes, Joseph O’Connor and now, Ciara Ní É.
IWC Ambassadors are all key figures in Irish literature selected across a range of disciplines and we look forward to working with them in furthering the aims and ambitions of the Irish Writers Centre both at home and abroad.
