We are delighted to report that Dr Caroline Magennis will be delivering the Keynote Address at ‘Prophets, Makers and Risk Takers: A Showcase of Writing from Northern Ireland‘: a 2-day festival that brings leading writers in Northern Ireland together, in person and online, to share their ideas and skills with emerging writers, and to promote the best of Northern Irish writing across the world.
Curated by writer Jan Carson, this 2-day hybrid event will take place in-person at Accidental Theatre in Belfast and online. The event will show the breadth of talent that Northern Ireland has to offer and will give representatives from UK and international festivals, and global networks, an opportunity to sit at the table and take note.
Participants will include writers Myra Zepf, Maria McManus, Bernie McGill, Reggie Chamberlain King, Olivia Fitzsimons, Sue Divin, Sam Thompson, Sheena Wilkinson, Finn Kennedy, Cat Brogan, Emily DeDakis, Aislinn Clarke, James Patterson and Kerri Ní Dochartaigh with representatives from the Irish Writers Centre, Extra Teeth, Storyline Literary Agency, ACNI, Tramp Press, Literature Ireland, EFACIS, the National Centre for Writing, Cove Park and Cheltenham Literature Festival.
