Something about Home
20 April, 6pm. Free, please book
An evening of poetry, prose and music to launch an anthology of new writing on the themes of migration, identity and belonging. Something About Home is a unique anthology that provides an invigorating array of creative responses to the experience of living with, and between, two worlds.
Editor Liam Harte has judiciously assembled over 60 original works of poetry, fiction and non-fiction by writers of all ages, from across Britain and Ireland, who offer richly varied perspectives on what it feels like to move from one country to another. The book has its origins in a series of AHRC-funded ‘Writing Migration’ workshops held in Manchester, Belfast and Mayo, which fired the imaginations of new and experienced writers alike. Among the featured authors is one of Ireland’s finest contemporary poets, Manchester-based John McAuliffe, who will join us for this event.
Liam Harte is Senior Lecturer in Irish and Modern Literature at the University of Manchester. His books include The Literature of the Irish in Britain: Autobiography and Memoir 1725-2001 (2009) and Reading the Contemporary Irish Novel 1987-2007 (2014).
