Responses to the International Literature Festival Dublin

By Ashleigh Young, Claire Mabey, Kirsty Gunn


This year, the International Literature Festival Dublin had a special focus on New Zealand writers, inviting Ashleigh Young and Kirsty Gunn to participate, along with other New Zealand literary figures such as Hera Lindsay Bird and Selina Tusitala Marsh. With an introduction by Claire Mabey, Director of LitCrawl Wellington, the writers explore their links to Dublin, the concept of 'female essayists' and their overall impressions of the festival.
