A Novel Discussion

Offline

A Novel Discussion is the second event in the ‘Word on the Streets’ Culture Night series.

This Q&A panel with Derry novelists is a rare opportunity to hear collectively from four local writers about the sense of place in their writing, the writing process and issues their work tackles. Brian McGilloway, Claire Allan, Dave Duggan and Sue Divin have all published novels to critical acclaim, often set on a backdrop of Derry~Londonderry, Strabane and the border area.

Expect banter and insight, topical conversation and a fair dose of Derry wit.

Audiences, both live and online will be treated to performances from some of the North-West’s finest spoken word artists with open mic.

Spoken word may have taken longer to get literary recognition than its page counterpart, but it’s been around for a lot longer. And we’re going to show you why. Four spoken word artists challenge the ideals of literary inclusion by showcasing their individual oratory stylings and diverse voices.

We’ll take a short Q&A via the live and online audiences before handing the stage over to the Open mic.

Not the poetry of school days, we’ll take you on a journey and you’ll love it!

Please note: Language Advisory;  some adult words in the performances may be unsuitable for younger ears.
