Welcome to the Irish Writers’ Centre (IWC) blog. If you are an Irish literature enthusiast or a writer of any kind –amateur, emerging, or prolific and well-known- you are in the right place. Irish literature is big business, with millions of tourists drawn to Ireland and its capital each year, seeking out our great authors of the past. They also come for the writers of today as Dublin has just become the most recent UNESCO City of Literature.
We aim to celebrate the incredible contribution Ireland’s modern day writers make to Ireland’s culture, economy and historical legacy here, so if you’re after dusty old quotes from Joyce or Wilde, this might not be the blog for you.
We’ll keep you abreast of what’s great and good in the current literary scene in Dublin and around the rest of the country. We’ll keep you up-to-date with events happening here at the Irish Writers’ Centre and at other great venues and bring you views, reviews, interviews and a world of literary news!
We are still developing this blog and it’s just the beginning of our adventure as bloggers, so let us know if you have any comments or feedback.
We invite you visit the site regularly and be a part of the Irish literary community!
