Books Beyond Boundaries: A Writing Workshop

The Books Beyond Boundaries NI Workshop is a ten-week online course designed to encourage diversity in fantasy, sci-fi, and horror writing on the island of Ireland.

Curated by Carolann North, and under the mentorship of joint facilitators Nandi Jola and Sveto Manev. Participants are given the opportunity to explore contemporary ideas surrounding identity and culture on the island of Ireland, discussing why diversity in speculative literature matters.

Through writing exercises and feedback, participants develop their own unique voice, creating new artwork and showcasing the best in contemporary, diverse speculative literature on the island of Ireland.

At the end of the course, participants are given the opportunity to showcase their writing through stage performance and offered submission to the Books beyond Boundaries Writing Anthology. This will be launched in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
