Words Ireland @ ILFDublin: A National Day for Writers is a one-day get together for professional and emerging writers working in all forms.
Words Ireland wants to build the ideal environment for writers to gather together, reflect on their creative and professional practice, catch up with industry leaders and be inspired.
As well as the writer-focused events, 40 literature organisations and lots of industry personnel will gather together to meet writers in the Great Hall at IMMA. Writers will have the opportunity to grab a free tea/coffee and sit down with the people and organisations who regularly offer writers work. There’s also a chance for 10 selected writers to pitch to 10 experienced film directors in a speed-dating style session (see here for further details).
There are nine events to choose from on the day. Each is short and sweet, 50 minutes long. You’ll get to choose the events that are right for you on the day, then everyone sits in on the final keynote event. The event will end with a drinks reception sponsored by Kinnegar Brewing!
