part of Listowel Writers' Week 2015
gorse identifies with the 'golden age' of literary Irish publishing, but the journal is not nostalgic for the past. Rather it is excited by what's happening in the here, the now and the future of writing. Inspiration comes from multifarious sources - the internet, Twitter, translation, the self - and this event, an inclusive and lively discussion interspersed with readings and with scope for audience participation, will showcase some of these ideas through writers associated with gorse and whose work blurs the lines between genres.
Featuring essayist and novelist Rob Doyle (Here Are the Young Men), writer and illustrator Joanna Walsh (Dalkey Archive's Best European Fiction, #ReadWomen2014), poet and gorse poetry editor Christodoulos Makris (Yes But Are We Enemies, The Architecture of Chance).
Presented and moderated by gorse founder and editor Susan Tomaselli.
