The literary journal has always been an indispensable ally for new writers seeking that elusive audience. Now Dublin Writers Festival is delighted to host this special evening to launch the latest editions of two publications that champion the very best in new Irish and international writing.
The Stinging Fly is a tri-annual publication that seeks out, promotes and celebrates contemporary Irish and international short stories. The Moth is a quarterly art and literature magazine, featuring poetry, short fiction and pictures by established and emerging artists and writers.
With live readings by featured guest writers Christine Dwyer Hickey, Rebecca O’Connor, Cathy Sweeney and Billy Ramsell, this after dark soirée offers a relaxed and informal encounter with tomorrow’s established and rising literary stars.
