Description

Words Ireland is delighted to partner with the Source Arts Centre to bring you one of their regional Writers Café on The Full-time Writer with Mia Gallagher.

Few writers live from book sales alone. Working as a full-time writer involves juggling a wide range of earning activities including teaching, reviewing, readings, editing, journalism, sitting on judging panels and more besides. For many it means being self-employed so learning about things like tax, pensions, and artists exemption is essential.

Mia Gallagher is a prize-winning fiction author, most recently of Beautiful Pictures of the Lost Homeland which featured as the Irish Times Book Club choice. She has also acted, directed, taught drama and creative writing. She works as a mentor and literary editor, and has been a writer in residence on numerous occasions. Mia will talk about what's involved and how to manage a career as a full-time writer.

Admission free, booking is essential.
