dc irishwriters festival
3rd – 7th march 2011

when you think of irish writers who comes to mind? how about a hip hop poet who writes exclusively in the irish language? Or a blogger known for her astute take-no-prisoners online posts? Irish writing can be many things and our festival explores it all.

The dc irish writers festival is a 5 day series of short readings from creative and innovative irish writers.  this eclectic mix of performance art, new media and traditional writing opens discussion up for a new interpretation of what defines Irish writing.

10 creative and innovative irish writers will give you a whole new perspective on Irish writing during this 5-day engaging festival. featuring sean o’ reilly, leanne o’ sullivan, gearóid mac lochlainn, sweary lady (aka lisa mcinerney), the stinging fly’s declan meade, antonia logue, ailbhe keogan, julian gough, leonita flynn as well as irish jazz singer melanie o’reilly performing poetry by nuala ní dhomhnaill.
