EFACIS, Project Director

We asked Irish fiction writers about the ways in which they negotiate the boundaries between inner and outer world. “If you were to sum up the act of writing in one characterization, would that be a curse, relief, bliss, a struggle, all of these?” To this and many other questions this website will give you fifty answers from the island of Ireland and the diaspora.
