We are pleased to present Kerri Ní Dochartaigh, who will discuss her debut novel thin places in conversation with Carlo Gébler as part of our new emerging writers series.
The interview will be available to watch on this page on Wednesday 7 July at 5 pm.
As part of its remit, the ICC provides a platform for Irish authors to launch, promote and discuss their work. While we enjoy showcasing established authors, we are very keen to encourage and support emerging writers by offering them a platform from which they can introduce and be interviewed about their work.
We are currently working with established writers – alongside creative writing courses, literary agents and publishing houses – in this new ongoing series featuring an established author introducing and interviewing a debut writer.
