Literature Producers Forum

Do you programme, produce or perform literature events 

projects? If yes, this is the Forum for you. The aim of the day is to:

  • identify ways to increase the ambition and quality of literary events, programmes and tours,
  • look at the role of cross-arts collaborations,
  • find out what audiences and venues want,
  • identify best practices in audience development,
  • identify potential partnerships between artists, producers, venues and festivals,
  • identify all possible funding avenues for new projects and productions.

The Forum is part of a larger effort to develop a greater culture of literature production in Ireland as more opportunities, outlets, venues and funding become available to creative directors and producers. Whether you're a writer, publisher, festival director, event producer, funder, librarian or arts administrator, there'll be something here for you.


10.30am–5.00pm + 6.00pm event, Mirrors  | Thurs 23 May | Smock Alley, Dublin
