Writers XBorders

XBorders is a new cross-border project bringing together emerging writers to explore and write about borders through fiction or non-fiction.  As part of the Irish Writers Centre’s Northern Irish programme, writers from across Ireland will work on the theme of borders in both a national and international context. I am one of the 18 participants.

At seminars and workshops in Belfast, Derry and Dublin, participants will explore creative ways of thinking about borders. They will learn from border expert Declan Long and security experts Mark Maguire and Eileen Murphy.  The seminars will be open to the public.

In the next four months, participants will produce a piece of fiction or non-fiction on the theme of borders. They will be guided by Patsy Horton, editor at Blackstaff Press and facilitator Maria McManus.  www.irishwriterscentre.ie
