Supported by the US Embassy in Dublin

Cúirt presents Conversations on Craft, a series of events to exercise the formal muscles of writers at every stage of their development. A series of webinars with live Q&As, these events will see contemporary writers take a forensic look at how some of the world’s best make their craft sing. These focused, illuminating discussions on form, structure and the creative process are not to be missed.

Don’t miss a fantastic opportunity to learn from a master of the lyric essay, the poet, playwright, cultural critic and founder of the Racial Imaginary Institute, Claudia Rankine. Rankine’s work, from Don’t Let Me Be Lonely to the historic publication of Citizen: An American Lyric, is celebrated for its formal ingenuity, incorporating poetry, photography, lyric prose and visual art. Citizen is a wide-ranging interrogation of racism on both sides of the Atlantic. We are honoured to welcome Professor Rankine to Cúirt, with her most recent book, Just Us: An American Conversation, published by Penguin in 2021.

Claudia is joined in conversation by poet and editor, Chiamaka Enyi-Amadi.

A number of subsidised places are available, please email to request one.

This is a live event and will have a Q&A at the end.  If you’d like to ask a question, you can do so via the Zoom Webinar Q&A function.
