Nuala O’Connor


Nuala O’Connor returns to Drumshanbo Written Word as the Prose Writing Workshop Facilitator for a second year. 

She brings remarkable insight to the craft and leaves with a sturdier bedrock upon which the participant can gain a strong foothold.

Her fifth novel, Nora, about Nora Barnacle and James Joyce, was published January 2021, by Harper Collins in the USA and in April 2021 in Ireland, by New Island and in Germany by Insel Verlag. It has since been published in the Netherlands and Croatia, and is forthcoming in Poland and Estonia.

Nora was named a Top 10 historical novel in the New York Times and the One Dublin One Book choice for 2022.
