Author Eileen Casey will take part in an evening talk “Three Voices / Three Forms” on Wednesday, 14th November. Here, she talks about www.redlinebookfestival.com.
“In 2002, I read some of my poems with Rita Ann Higgins on the inaugural Readers Day programme, an event called ‘Like Wine Through Water’. It’s a pleasure and a privilege to read on The Redline Book Festival also and with writers I have great respect for. Back in 2002, in an interview with The Tallaght Echo, I said that reading and writing make for a great marriage. This is still the case and it’s especially lovely for a writer to read to a ‘live’ audience. It gives the work a different acoustic.
Since 2002 I’ve kept writing and publishing, it’s as natural as breathing to me now. I also facilitate creative writing workshops and it’s wonderful to see new writers coming through each year. South Dublin has a particularly vibrant arts community. We might be in economic recession but the imaginative treasury is still solid.” – Eileen Casey
