Writers, Stephanie Conn and Rosemary Jenkinson, are back from their all-Ireland book tour to read from Stephanie’s brand new poetry collection, Island - inspired by her family’s history on the Copeland Islands - and Rosemary’s short story collection, Catholic Boy, which is largely set in east Belfast. Both brilliant readers and rising stars, they will provide the perfect literary start to the weekend.  

Stephanie Conn is a prize-winning poet and her pamphlet ‘Copeland’s Daughter’ is published by Smith/Doorstep.  
Rosemary Jenkinson is from east Belfast, was 2017 artist-in-residence at the Lyric and is published by Doire Press.
