ULSTER UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL LITERARY FESTIVAL

Type : Festivals

International Literary Festival Arts Faculty, Ulster University presents ULSTER UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL LITERARY FESTIVAL This inaugural series of events will celebrate how the power of writing can express the human desire to travel and the aspiration to build a home and community. The Ulster University International Literary Festival will launch in October 2016. This inaugural series of events will celebrate how the power of writing can express the human desire to travel and the aspiration to build a home and community. Coleraine’s prominence as a historic town that can be accessed by road, sea, air and rail makes it the perfect location to articulate the journeys of imagination that literature can provide. In a series of readings, workshops, talks and events the Festival will provide a platform to engage with the written and spoken work of an international array of writers and performers.
