Modern Writers on Medieval Literature

On Friday 7th March, the School of Celtic Studies at NUI Maynooth will be hosting an informal workshop on the theme of ‘Modern Writers and Medieval Literature’. Award-winning writers and poets, writing in English, Irish, and Welsh, will discuss the significance of medieval Irish, Welsh and Old Norse literature as a source of inspiration and influence for modern creative writing. The speakers are: Welsh novelist and poet Chris Meredith; Irish novelists Trevor Byrne (who writes in English) and Pádraig Ó Cíobháin (who writes in Irish); and Dr Debbie Potts, from the ‘Modern Poets on Viking Poetry‘ project, a cultural translation project based at the University of Cambridge and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK). There is no registration fee for this event, but places are strictly limited and therefore booking is essential: to reserve a place, please contact me via email. There is further information, including a conference poster, on our website.
