Saturday 30th November
Venues: Magpie Inn and Grapevine
Writers’ Forum is designed to inform and enable you to go further, providing in-depth knowledge, information and actionable advice about writing and publishing.
This year, Festival Founder and Director Anna Fox goes behind the scenes on publishing and writing with Sarah Davis Goff of Tramp Press fame in Two Worlds. You will also be inspired by five writers who started out at Dalkey Creates and are now published authors. Find out what, why and how they've done it in Pathways to Publishing.
The two Networking Sessions offer a shared social space for you to connect with other writers, make helpful contacts, and discuss all things writerly, and A Room to Write is a reason to write: the Mezannine at Dalkey Library has been made into a dedicated writing space for you for the afternoon. And finally no writing festival would be complete without celebrating their prize-winners, which you can join us for at the Dalkey Writing Prizes on Friday 29th November.
Sessions are individually priced or free, but booking is required.
