Fingal's Annual Writers' Festival 2nd – 10th November 2012

Writing 3.0 initially evolved from the well established ‘Finscéal: A Writer’s Trail of Fingal’ an initiative for writers and readers throughout Fingal since 2005. The shift to Writing 3.0 in 2010 conceptualised the writing process in the twenty-first century; how it evolves from the blank page across a range of technologies associated with creativity that potentially reaches vast audiences. Writing 3.0 2011 continues its focus on the writing process today, with Fingal Libraries Department and Fingal Arts Office collaborating once again to extend the emphasis on writing towards performance and uplifting experiences. This year we have programmed workshops and performances on comedy and improvisation, songwriting, screenwriting, and performance poetry, as well as the traditional focus on writing and reading poetry and fiction.

Edna O’Brien: By the Book

Edna O’Brien: By the Book | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
The author, most recently, of “The Love Object” says Joyce staked his claim on Dublin, and it was left to Yeats, J. M. Synge and Beckett “to give us the landscape of the country in all its beauty, savagery, ghostliness and loneliness.”
