A Journey Called Home. UCC launch of book showcasing writing from multicultural Cork.

31 Jan 2019

Tuesday 5 February, 6:30pm, O'Rahilly Building (First Floor)

Cork City Libraries in association with Ó Bhéal made a call for poems and short prose about Cork city experiences, from writers living in Cork who are not originally from Ireland, inviting them to write in their own languages.  This project is one of the Cork City Council Creative Ireland Programme initiatives for 2018.  The book includes thirty images from three Cork-based photographers who have migrated to Ireland – Azem Koleci, Silvio Severino and Jed Niezgoda. 

Edited by Paul Casey, the anthology presents original works from sixty-two writers in twenty languages, along with translations into English, including Croatian, German, Urdu, Portuguese, French, Shona, Russian, Spanish, Hungarian, Chinese, Kurdish, Filipino, Galician, Polish, Dutch, Ndebele, Romanian, Italian and Somali. 

This event features contributors currently connected to UCC.
