Omagh Literary Festival

‘Discovering Your Voice & Finding an Audience’, a virtual event from the Omagh Literary Festival, was broadcast on the Strule Arts Centre, Omagh Facebook page and the Fermanagh and Omagh District Council YouTube channel on Saturday, 23rd October 2021.

The programme featured Michelle Gallen (author of Big Girl Small Town) and Sue Divin (author of Guard Your Heart) as well as performance poet Cat Brogan, from Omagh, and renowned violinist Nollaig Casey. Sarah Grimes also lead a discussion about Flann O’Brien’s The Third Policeman, assessing the way the novel is still finding new audiences today.

This event was sponsored by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council. After a few years of being unable to host in-person festival events, we’re thankful for their support in helping us make the step into virtual events, which we hope will bring the Omagh Literary Festival to an even larger audience.
