Strange Times, Strange Tellers: An Experimental Fiction Showcase

Experimental fiction workshop leader and poet Dave Lordan will MC a showcase of experimental fiction from his workshop at the Irish Writers Centre.

‘EXPERIMENTAL FICTION’: it’s a curious and a somewhat problematic term. How, one thinks, would Joyce or Calvino react to the term ‘experimental fiction’?

Then again, it’s hard to think of another term to describe a sub genre that allows for both a single workshop and a single reading environment for drama, audio and dance, short fiction and flash fiction, interactive fictions and fictions of chance.

Well, that’s what will happen on Thursday, 3rd of April at Toner’s Pub, Baggot Street, when experimental fiction workshop leader Dave Lordan leadsĀ Charlene Putney, Ray Treacy, Roisin O’Donnell, Morgan McKnight, Nadia Gativa, Tracy Hanna, Paul McGee, Jane Murray, Roisin Kennedy Foley, Andrew Devine-Rattigan and Sydney Weinberg through a night of readings.

A Q&A session will conclude the showcase of experimental fiction.
