Belfast Literary GuideThe Belfast Literary Guide will help you as you journey through the literary city of Belfast. It guides you through the city, from the splendour of City Hall and Writer's Square to back alleys and quiet suburban streets across the city where the finest of our writers lived, walked and worked.
Some of the writers need little introduction. Seamus Heaney is known across the world as one of the finest poets writing in the English language, while contemporaries like Medbh McGuckian and Michael Longley are praised by critics and readers alike.
Brian Moore, that unquiet exile, moved from Belfast to all corners of the globe, in life and in fiction, while illustrious visitors from John Keats to EM Forster, Anthony Trollope to Kate O'Brien, have entered the city and written about what they've seen and heard.
Add to that a new breed of fiction writers and poets, who've made the city their own over the past decade, including people like Sinead Morrissey, Leontia Flynn, Glenn Patterson, Anna Burns, Jason Johnston and Lucy Caldwell.
