Hi, I’m Deirdre Cartmill. I’m an award-winning poet, writer and screenwriter based in Belfast, and I’m delighted to be the Monaghan County Libraries Writer in Residence.

As we can’t get together in libraries and school at the moment, I’m bringing my Residency online.

Throughout January we’ll be looking at ‘Writing for Wellbeing’.  A New video will be released every Monday evening at 8pm.  You can also look back through previous series from 2020 listed below.
