Delighted to be heading off to Italy next year in very fine company indeed. From the Irish Writers' Centre:
Writers for Italo-Irish Literary Exchange announced!    

The Irish Writers' Centre is delighted to announce the seven writers who will travel to Italy in May 2014 thanks to a unique alliance between the Irish Writers' Centre, the Italian Institute of Culture in Dublin and the Verona-based arts organisation ònoma. They are:    
Nuala Ní Chonchúir
Mia Gallagher
Afric McGlinchey
Sean Hardie

William Wall  
The exchange will feature a daily series of workshops, recreational tours, publishing seminars and literary talks focusing on the challenges facing both emerging and established writers. Congratulations to all!  
On 25th May 2013, five Italian writers arrive in Dublin to participate in an exciting programme of literary and cultural events including readings, day trips, panel discussions and musical soirées, before travelling on to Listowel. Acclaimed Italian author Dacia Maraini along with Gaja Cenciarelli, Ida Ferrari, Luigi Grimaldi and Federica Sgaggio will read their work at a free public event at 12 noon on Sunday May 26th at the stunning Botanic Gardens. ALL WELCOME.
On Sunday May 26th at 7PM - also a public event but this time at the Irish Writers' Centre - musician Seán Tyrrell is performing. Hailed as "one of the country's major folk voices" (Irish Music Magazine), "rooted in the heartfelt tradition of honesty" (Hotpress), and "the genuine article" (Billboard US), legendary singer/songwriter Seán Tyrrell will perform at the Irish Writers' Centre on Sunday evening, May 26th, at 7.00 p.m. as part of the Italo/Irish Literature Exchange festival. Don't miss this chance to hear what has been described as a"luminously distinctive voice" (Irish Examiner) and "astonishingly accomplished musicianship" (Hotpress). Tickets at €5.00 are likewise going for a song!
