Play It Forward Fellowships

About this event

Play It Forward Fellowships is a programme aimed at nurturing and amplifying the talents of writers whose voices and stories have traditionally been underrepresented in Irish literature and publishing.

Lucy Caldwell and Cauvery Madhavan, programme ambassadors, will kick off the evening in a conversation traversing the changing face of the Irish literary landscape over the past decade and the need to advance new perspectives around diversity, inclusion, access and opportunity. The inaugural cohort of fellows — Gonchigkhand Byambaa, Sara Chudzik, Neo Florence Gilson, Majed Mujed and Sarah Fitzgerald — will read a selection of their work in a special showcase.

Play It Forward is a joint initiative between Skein Press and The Stinging Fly, funded by the Arts Council of Ireland/An Chomhairle Ealaíon.

This event is available as a Live in Person event and as a Livestream. To purchase a Live Audience Event ticket, please continue via Eventbrite.
