Literature Producers Forum

Thursday, 23 May
Smock Alley Theatre
€30 / €20 (creative writers discount)*

Theatres and venues across Ireland are hungry for quality programming ideas, while funding bodies would like to see more ambitious literature events and projects touring the country. Words Ireland supports writers, creative directors, and producers of all kinds to realise their ideas. Informative and inspirational, the Literature Producers Forum also showcases Words Ireland’s ambitious first production Mirrors, created by Dani Gill.

The Forum will:

Examine the spectrum of ‘literature programming’ (such as performances, education programmes, residencies, collaborations), and discuss best practice.

Experience a dynamic presentation from UK producer Julia Bird of Jaybird Live Literature on creativity and process.

Get the inside track from venue managers and festival directors as to what audiences really want. Reveal the funding avenues available to producers. An unmissable opportunity for programmers, funders or producers of literature events and projects!

Ticket includes free access to Mirrors*
