RSL Open: Northern Ireland Writers Day – In Conversation with Paul McVeigh and Molly Rosenberg

 Registration is closed for this event

Free for ALL: RSL Members should Log in to book. For public tickets, please select 'Member' on the registration page.

Join the Royal Society of Literature and Arts Council Northern Ireland for a day of activity, shining a spotlight on the outstanding writers and writing of Northern Ireland, hosted by award-winning writer Paul McVeigh. A seminarworkshop, and panel discussion aim to inspire you to revisit and recommend your most loved Northern Irish writers.

Paul McVeigh and RSL Director Molly Rosenberg discuss the RSL Open programme and answer your questions about what RSL Fellowship means, why a community of writers is important, and how to recommend a writer to the programme.

Paul McVeigh's debut novel, The Good Son, won The Polari First Novel Prize and The McCrea Literary Award. It was shortlisted for The Authors’ Club Best First Novel Award, the Prix du Roman Cezam in France and a finalist for The People’s Book Prize. The Good Son was chosen as Brighton’s City Reads 2016 and was given out as part of World Book Night 2017. Paul has written comedy, essays, flash fiction, a novel, plays and short stories, and his work has been performed on radio, stage and television, and published in seven languages.


The RSL believes that literature is at its best when it includes voices from the greatest breadth of backgrounds and experiences from across the UK. Through the RSL Open Fellowship programme, we’re electing 60 RSL Fellows from communities under-represented in UK literature – particularly writers outside of London, writers of colour, working class writers and LGBTQ+ writers.

Tickets are free. Register for one or all of the sessions.

Presented in partnership with Arts Council Northern Ireland.
