Meet the Fellows: Lucy Caldwell & Lisa McGee
Seamus Heaney HomePlace
45 Main Street
This year, the Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry at Queen’s University announced the appointment of Lucy Caldwell, Lisa McGee and Iain Archer as the second trio of Seamus Heaney Centre Fellows.
The fellowships enable three writers annually to contribute to the activities of the Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry within the university and the wider literary community, and HomePlace is delighted to host this special showcase event, which will feature Lucy Caldwell and Lisa McGee.
Lisa McGee is a stage and screenwriter from Derry who studied drama at Queen's University. She created the hit Channel 4 sitcoms London Irish and Derry Girls, the second series of which is meeting with great critical and audience acclaim.
Lucy Caldwell is a Belfast-born author of three novels, several stage plays and radio dramas, and a collection of short stories. She has recently edited Being Various: New Irish Short Stories (Faber).
We are delighted to host Lucy and Lisa in this evening of words and inspiration.
