Litquake is thrilled to be able to feature one of Ireland’s major rising literary stars, Chiamaka Enyi-Amadi, in this event which emphasizes her recent anthology Writing Home: The New Irish Poets, a major new collection of writing from Ireland that acknowledges and celebrates the contribution of those whose roots lie outside of the country. This essential book features poets from places as diverse as India and Italy, Poland and Pakistan, Canada and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as well as the US, the UK and Ireland itself. Together they present an updated picture of a changing country while, at the same time, expanding the very definition of ”writing from Ireland.“ She will be in conversation with a fellow Dubliner, author and artist Emer Martin.
