What’s happening? Words Ireland @ ILFDublin: A National Day for Writers is a one-day get together for professional and emerging writers working in all forms. It takes place at IMMA, Dublin on Friday 25 May.
What is it, exactly? We’re building the ideal environment for you to gather together, reflect on your creative and professional practice, catch up with industry leaders and be inspired.
So what will happen on the day? As well as the writer-focused events, we’re gathering 40 literature organisations and lots of industry personnel together to meet writers in the Great Hall at IMMA. Grab a free tea/coffee and sit down with the people and organisations who regularly offer writers work. There’s also a chance for 10 selected writers to pitch to 10 experienced film directors in a speed-dating style session.
How does it work? There are nine events to choose from on the day. Each is short and sweet, 50 minutes long. You’ll get to choose the events that are right for you on the day, then everyone sits in on the final keynote event. Finally, a drinks reception sponsored by Kinnegar Brewing!
I have a published book that I want to pitch to Film Directors! Great stuff; we have just the thing for you. We’ll be pairing ten ticket holders with ten film directors, so you can pitch your story to each one. For details and application visit http://wordsireland.ie/writer-film-director-speed-dating/
Is it pricey? Early bird tickets are €45 and general admission is €55. That includes free lunch of sandwiches and drinks reception. Group tickets for 3 cost €120 in total, so if you can encourage two more writer friends to join you, it’ll only cost €40 each.
