Galway - Galway City

Cúirt International Festival of Literature

Celebrating The Irish Short Story


Irish writing knows little of boundaries, spanning sublime realism to brilliant genre fiction to ground-breaking experimentation. Nowhere is this more clear than in the short story. ‘The Art Of The Glimpse’, soon to be released by Head of Zeus Publishing, brings together a radical revision of the canon of Irish writing.

Join a stellar line up of Emma Donoghue, Oein DeBharduin, Donal Ryan, Chiamaka Enyi-Amadi and Sinéad Gleeson for an evening of stories and a discussion about the rich tradition of storytelling in Irish writing. In partnership with Culture Night and Kenny’s Bookshop.
