Write Here, Write Now 2016: A Story of Ireland

Two cities, One book:

A Story of Ireland is a Hot Press initiative to mark the centenary of the 1916 Rising. Dublin and Belfast will partner in Dublin City Council’s Two Cities One Book Festival, based on the chosen book, Fallen by Lia Mills published by Penguin.

To coincide with the Festival, and as a key part of the national commemorations, Hot Press and Dublin City libraries, in association with Libraries NI and with the support of the Ireland 2016 office, are planning a major all-Ireland writing competition. It will aim to uncover the best new young writing talent in the country while also drawing the attention of people all over Ireland to Fallen, to the themes in the book and to the Two Cities, One Book programme of events.

Category 1 is reserved for secondary level pupils; there will be one male winner and one female winner. Each winner will be invited to to a two-week internship at Hot Press.

Better hurry though, because the closing date is February 19, 2016.
