The Laureate for Irish Fiction presents the Long Night of the Short Story

Five writers, five short stories, with musical responses from Lisa O’Neill. Prepare to be entranced by a Long Night of the Short Story, where writers take it all the way to the sweet or bitter end. Curated by Anne Enright, the evening includes writers Mike McCormack, Lisa McInerney, Danielle McLaughlin and Colm Tóibín.


Anne Enright is the inaugural Laureate for Irish Fiction and was awarded the honour by the Arts Council in early 2015. The Laureate for Irish Fiction promotes Irish literature nationally and internationally and encourages the public to engage with high quality Irish fiction. The Laureate for Irish Fiction has been developed by the Arts Council and is supported by University College Dublin (UCD), New York University (NYU) and The Irish Times.
