Award winning writer Jan Parsons initial EFACIS Podcast
Jan Carson’s is the first to feature in June as part of the Irish Itinerary, an initiative of the European Federation of Associations and Centres of Irish Studies (EFACIS).
The programme, supported by Culture Ireland, has been re-imagined by EFACIS for 2020 to include a series of interviews and readings with Irish writers as podcasts on their website, available to a global audience.
In the first of these interviews, Jan Carsons talks with Katharina Rennhak, President of EFACIS. Jan is a writer from Ballymena in Northern Ireland and her recent novel 'The Fire Starters' won the EU Prize for Literature in 2019 and has been nominated for the Dalkey Novel of the Year Award.
The Irish Itinerary programme will run for the coming months and will include Lisa McInerney and Kevin Barry amongst many highly regarded Irish writers.
