Books & Writers
To support its promotion of Irish books and writers around the world, Literature Ireland produces a range of print and online materials. These are circulated both online and at book fairs and at other key international literature and translation events.
Our online Translation Directory provides a comprehensive and exclusive listing of the books that Literature Ireland has supported in translation since 1995.
The annual New Writing from Ireland catalogue presents a snapshot of contemporary Irish writing, together with details of the publisher and relevant rightsholders.
We have produced three series of author portraits which provide a cross-section of images of contemporary Irish authors with beautiful black and white photographs by the acclaimed photographers Richard Gilligan and John Minihan.
Other publications includes occasional essays commissioned to support special initiatives in key territories, including an essay on contemporary Irish literature by Claire Kilroy and an introduction to Irish children’s writing by Siobhán Parkinson.
