About this event

A panel event to promote emerging writers and help them with their journey from writing the first draft to finding an agent and becoming published. Brian Langan literary agent joins Donal Ryan, established award-winning author and Louise Kennedy, emerging novelist.

Donal Ryan, from Nenagh, Co. Tipperary, is the author of five number one-bestselling novels and a short story collection. In 2021 he became the first Irish writer to be awarded the Jean Monnet Prize for European Literature. His work has been adapted for stage and screen and translated into over twenty languages. A law graduate and former civil servant, Donal has lectured in Creative Writing at the University of Limerick since 2014.

Louise Kennedy grew up in Holywood, Co Down. Her short stories have appeared in a number of prestigious journals including The Stinging Fly, The Tangerine, Banshee, Wasifiri and Ambit and she has written for The Guardian, Irish Times, BBC Radio 4 and RTÉ Radio 1. Her work has won numerous prizes and she was shortlisted for the Sunday Times Audible Short Story Award in both 2019 and 2020. Her debut novel ‘Trespasses’ was published in April.

All events or shows will be filmed or photographed. Buying a ticket affirms your consent to the filming, sound recording, or photographing of yourself as a member of the audience.
