Event Description

The Working-Class Writing Archive is a website and collection which brings together writing by working-class writers and groups in Dublin that has never been catalogued, preserved or archived before, and in some cases would otherwise have been lost forever.

Bealtaine Festival in partnership with Poetry Ireland hosts this online exploration of the mapping of this unique archive with curators Dr. Emma Penney and poet Sophie Meehan, and with readings from contributing writers whose preserved work resonates with and celebrates creativity as we age.
