Event description

Description

Words Ireland and Bray Literary Festival, with the support of the Wicklow County Arts Office, are pleased to present a duo of lectures from Sean O’Reilly and Claire-Louise Bennett at The Martello Hotel on Bray's seafront.

Both writers will reflect on the various challenges and internal battles that writers face when they sit down to the desk. Talks will touch on childhood, writing and rationality, fear, phantasy, rebellion and more. With a break between the two 40-minute lectures and bar available, the event provides an afternoon for writers to reflect on their own creative practice and process in a warm setting and good company.

Claire-Louise Bennett’s short fiction and essays have been published in The Moth, The Irish Times, and other publications. She was awarded the inaugural White Review Short Story Prize in 2013. Pond is her first book. Bennett lives in Galway, Ireland.

Sean O’Reilly was born in Derry in 1969. He has published a collection of short stories, Curfew and Other Stories (2000) and three novels, Love and Sleep (2002), The Swing of Things (2004) and Watermark (2005). Levitation, a new collection of stories, was published by Stinging Fly Press in 2017.
