Watch out for
The National Emerging Writer Programme, which could help you start and finish that book you always felt you were on the verge of writing.
A Dublin Unesco City of Literature project, developed by the website writing.ie, the programme comes in the form of a 40-minute DVD that focuses on essential writing techniques and offers tips from the well-known Irish writers Carlo Gébler, Declan Hughes and Sinéad Moriarty.
The director of Dublin Unesco City of Literature, Jane Alger, says: “We hope that the programme will have a significant and tangible impact on writing in Ireland, a legacy that will result in many new writers emerging on the world stage.”
The programme will be launched in Pearse Street Library, Dublin 2, at 2.30pm on Wednesday, by Minister for Arts Jimmy Deenihan.
