John O'Connor Writing School | Our Patron
Welcome to the inaugural John O’Connor Writing School and literary arts festival 2016. The three-day festival will be hosted in some of Armagh’s most historic, graceful and inspiring buildings including the magnificent Georgian Armagh Public Library, the Market Street Library, the Market Place Theatre, the Charlemont Arms Hotel and upstairs at Armagh County Museum! The writing school in John O’Connor’s name is intended to mark the rediscovery of his highly acclaimed novel, Come Day Go Day and to involve people in the art of writing fiction, creative non-fiction and commercial communications. The three days promise to offer a unique mix of arts events, writing courses and Masterclasses which will provide something for everyone.

Paul Muldoon

Paul Muldoon was born in County Armagh in 1951. He now lives in New York. A former radio and television producer for the BBC in Belfast, he has taught at Princeton University for almost thirty years. He is the author of twelve collections of poetry including Moy Sand and Gravel, for which he won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize. Roger Rosenblatt, writing recently in The New York Times Book Review, described Paul Muldoon as “one of the great poets of the past hundred years, who can be everything in his poems – word-playful, lyrical, hilarious, melancholy. And angry. Only Yeats before him could write with such measured fury.”
