Award-winning author Joseph O’Connor joined the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Limerick in 2014 as inaugural Frank McCourt Chair in Creative Writing. Joseph teaches students on our Masters in Creative Writing programme, as well as presenting a number of public literary events in the Limerick area.

The Frank McCourt Chair was established at UL as an acknowledgement of the close ties between the late Frank McCourt and the University of Limerick, reflected not only in his work at the University as a creative writer but, more latterly, in his involvement with the University of Limerick Foundation.

In this video, Joseph discusses creative writing, as part of a series of videos UL Talks.
