Event Details

Writing Competition:

The Irish Writers Centre is delighted to announce the return of a Flash Fiction and Creative Non-Fiction competition themed around the climate crisis, in partnership with the National Botanic Gardens and Channel.

“Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable.” – Mary Oliver

The climate crisis and the environment are constant subjects of discussion, but it can be hard to stay aware of the need to be consciously active in making environmental improvements in our daily lives. In this competition, we are asking writers to embrace the concept of the climate crisis through short new pieces of contemporary writing which reflect or illustrate this subject in an innovative and relevant manner. This year we ask writers to respond to the Mary Oliver quote above.

No entry fee. Click ‘Learn More’ to see competition rules.



(Wednesday) 17:00 - 17:00
