Talk 1 – The Writing Process
Tuesday 7 February @ 6.30pm
‘The Writing Process’ is the first of four talks in the The Life Cycle of the Book series. The talk will cover the first stages of the creation of a book and will include discussions with experts in this area. Vanessa O’Loughlin author and the founder of writing.ie, will be the first speaker of the night followed by Ronan McGreevy of The Irish Times, and author of Wherever the Firing Line Extends – The Irish on the Western Front.
Publishing Ireland, in association with Words Ireland and the Irish Writers Centre is hosting a series of short evening talks on the different aspects of the publishing process, aimed at writers and the general public. The idea is to break down the stages of publishing, from the completion of a manuscript right through to the books being on the shelves and being discussed in the media.
There will be 4 talks in total, covering 4 different stages, those stages being ‘The Writing Process’, ‘Getting Published’, ‘What Publishers Do’ and ‘Reaching the Reader’.
Each talk will involve a panel of three speakers, all experts in their field, who will talk for 15 minutes with an audience Q&A to follow.
The talks will be held on successive Tuesday evenings, from 6.30pm to 8pm in February in The Irish Writers Centre.
