Interviews with Writer Paul McVeigh, Arts Council NI Nóirín McKinney and Chef Asma Khan.”
You can hear me talk on NVTV about the Jaipur Literature Festival and that they are bringing their newest satellite version in Belfast which I’m involved with. The segment starts about 17 mins in.

I’ll be heading over to India to speak at Jaipur Book Mark before attending ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival in January. Looking forward to working with Namita Ghokhale again.
Thanks to Arts Council Northern Ireland for their support with this trip.
I’m delighted to have been invited to speak at the 12th edition of the ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival to be held from 24th to 28th January 2019.
Hosted at the heritage Diggi Palace, located in the heart of the Pink City of Jaipur, the Festival is among the world’s leading literary events attracting authors, publishers and book lovers from across the world. In 2018, it hosted over 350 speakers in 200 panels and represented over 25 languages, receiving over 4,00,000 footfalls in a span of 5 days.
The ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival provides a potentially life-changing opportunity for audiences from Rajasthan, across India and the world to learn from and exchange ideas with contemporary literary stalwarts.
I’m particularly delighted to be working with Festival Director Namita Gokhale again, after we co-judged the International Dylan Thomas Prize this year.
This trip is made possible by the support of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
