Welcome to the Words Ireland Lecture Series – by writers, for writers, on writing.
Words Ireland has commissioned six of Ireland’s foremost creative writers to deliver a lecture on the craft, practice, or process of writing. Starting on Tuesday Oct 27th, these lectures will be available to view on this page or at the Words Ireland YouTube channel. A new video will be posted each week for 6 weeks.

The Words Ireland Lecture Series replaces the Writer’s Conference that Words Ireland had planned to run in May 2020. Each lecture has been developed with an audience of professional and emerging writers in mind. They aren’t your ordinary online fare.
