Harness Your Hopes

‘Harness Your Hopes’ will be a series of 6 podcast episodes of 30 minutes investigating and showcasing fiction.  Six of the West of Ireland’s upcoming authors will write a specific new short story inspired by the theme of ‘harness your hopes’.  The author will read the story. Following this, the author will speak with the presenter about their craft and inspiration and how the theme inspired them.   The aim of the programme is to place the listener at the heart of the artist’s creative process, while finding common ground and some positivity in these difficult times.

Podcast episodes will be available here, on the Creative Ireland website and wherever you get your podcasts in September.

This programme is supported by a Creative Ireland Bursary from Galway County Council.

Writers taking part: Sasha de Buyl, Alan McMonagle, Órfhlaith Foyle, Gerry Boland, Celeste AugéOwodunni Mustapha

Producer: Alan Meaney.
