Masterclass with Jacques Jouet

Cost: €5 | Book via Eventbrite
The French Embassy, Dalkey Archive Press and the Irish Writers Centre are offering a Masterclass with innovative French writer Jacques Jouet – an expert in the experimental form – who is published in English by the Dalkey Archive.
Jouet is a novelist, short story writer, playwright, essayist, visual artist and poet who founded the unique form 'poème de métro'; literally a poem exclusively written on the subway.
'From the perspective of American readers, Jacques Jouet’s writing is one of contemporary French literature’s best-kept secrets. That’s because until very recently none of his books had found their way into English translation—and the fault is ours rather than his, because Jouet himself has been producing smart, funny, vibrant, pungent literature in astonishing diversity and abundance for the last quarter century.'
Warren Motte, 'Reading Jacques Jouet'
