Founded in 1991, the Irish Writers Centre is the national resource centre for Irish literature.

Their mission is to support and promote writers at all stages of their development.

The IWC offers a diverse programme of writing courses and workshops led by established writers across a range of genres including memoir, poetry, playwriting, short-stories and the novel.

The Centre runs seminars, lectures and readings related to the art of writing and also hosts a monthly Takin’ the Mic, where members of the public are encouraged to share their creative endeavours.

They welcome writers, readers and international visitors keen to develop their career as a writer.
