Experimental Literature Q&A

Over on Dave Lordan's blog I discuss experimental writing as part of a short series featuring various writers & arts professionals invited to do so by Dave. This is part of the build up to the Circa Bloomsday weekend event at the Irish Writers' Centre over this coming weekend 14-15 June, which celebrates and showcases contemporary experimental literature in honour of the legacy of Joyce, and the Blast 100 modernist symposium at Trinity College in early July - in both of which Dave is participating. The other respondents so far are Rob Doyle, Máighréad Medbh, Graham Allen & Darran Anderson.
