Our How to Write a Book series is heading to Galway International Arts Festival. In the latest in our series of events to tie in with our How to Write a Book series, Sinéad Gleeson will host a Q&A session with three writers, who will share their tips and hints for getting your masterpiece off your mind and on to the page.

This weekend at the Galway International Arts Festival you can benefit from the experience of three top writers. Eimear McBride, winner of the recent Bailey’s Women’s Prize for Fiction and nearly any other gong you care to mention for A Girl Is a Half-Formed Thing, will join Sinéad, along with short-story writer and novelist Mike McCormack (Notes from a Coma) and Alan McMonagle (Psychotic Episodes).

This event is free but ticketed, as part of the festival and takes place on Sunday, July 20th at 11am. For tickets and more information, click here.
