Storytelling transcends many art forms – whether it is through the written word, the visual arts or the physical realm of acting. RTÉ presenter Rick O’Shea will engage four transmedia storytellers about their experiences working across multiple mediums during the current Golden Age of Television. Actress and playwright Lisa Harding’s debut novel Harvesting (New Island Books) tells the harrowing story of two teenage girls thrown together in a Dublin brothel. Andrew Meehan is a short-fiction writer, screenwriter and former Head of Development at the Irish Film Board. His first novel One Star Awake (New Island Books) is a fractured fairy tale, by turns heartbreaking and hilarious. Actor, filmmaker, model and author Eoin Macken will discuss his new novel Hunter and the Grape (Ward River Press), a touching tale tracing a young man’s obsessive journey to Los Angeles to track down his lost love. Stefanie Preissner is the creator of the comedy-drama series Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope, documentary How to Adult, best-selling one-woman theatre show Solpadeine Is My Boyfriend and author of Why Can’t Everything Just Stay the Same? (Hachette Books Ireland).
