Irish writers have long been at the forefront of formal experimentation in English-language fiction. Today, these writers are asking new questions about what fiction can do and mean.

Join the SOF/Heyman for a day-long symposium that brings together some of the most widely acclaimed and adventurous Irish writers of the twenty-first century to discuss the way forward for Irish fiction. 

The event will be moderated by celebrated author and professor in the department Colm Tóibín, and will feature authors Colin Barrett, Luke Cassidy, Naoise Dolan, Rob Doyle, Nicole Flattery, Mike McCormack, Eimear McBride, Lisa McInerney, and Belinda McKeon.
