Irish Writers in London Summer School

3 June 2021 – 9 July 2021

Tuesday and Thursday evenings in June and July 2021, with an additional Friday evening in the final week

I am delighted to be a guest writer for the 25th Irish Writers in London Summer School, run by London Metropolitan University. I shall be reading from, and discussing, my collection of linked short stories, As Long as it Takes, described by Martina Evans as, “dark, impeccably minimalistic stories about immigrant mothers and their English-born daughters”.

Here is some information about the course, from the London Metropolitan University website:

First established in 1996, the Irish Writers in London Summer School is celebrating its 25th anniversary and will be formally opened by our new patron Martina Evans and due to continuing pandemic restrictions will be delivered online. The Summer School provides an informal but informed setting for you to read and discuss contemporary literature. It’s also an opportunity to explore the different relationships writers have with place and identity, whether born in Ireland or of Irish descent. How has the experience of migration influenced their work? How in turn has their writing helped express and mediate Irish culture and Irishness at home and abroad?

Guest writers are Kit de Waal, Catherine Heaney, Lin Coghlan, Peter Flanagan and Maria C. McCarthy.

My guest spot is on 1 July 2021, but you must be enrolled on the full course to attend.
