The Irish Writers Centre
The Irish Writers Centre has long been a hub of literary activity, supporting established and aspiring writers throughout Ireland from its base at the heart of Dublin’s cultural quarter. It is a non-profit organisation, a registered charity, with the remit of promoting Irish writers and literature at home and abroad.
The Irish Writers Centre was founded in 1987 and its doors opened to the public at 19 Parnell Square, Dublin, in 1991. Since then it has welcomed many award winning writers, including Nobel, Costa, Man Booker, IMPAC, and Pulitzer Prize winners. It has also served as an important platform for breakthrough talent, with many young writers giving their first public readings here.
Through a diverse programme of creative writing workshops, seminars, lectures and readings, the Centre nurtures emerging talent and fosters relationships between writers and their audience.
