This week Newstalk presents a new documentary by independent producer Bairbre Flood.

Poets and editors from Nigeria, Zimbabwe, India and South Africa give us an in-depth look at diversity in Irish writing and publishing.

Signing In: The ‘New Irish’ Writers, will air on Sunday May 2nd at 7am and will be available as a podcast straight after the broadcast.

Nidhi Zak/Aria Eipe, Christie Kandiwa, Chandrika Narayanan-Mohan, Khanyo Dlamini and Chiamaka Enyi-Amadi read their poetry of love, migration, family - and share their own unique experiences of ‘home’. They reflect on the power of language to shape identity, and the connection between writing and social change.

They explain how we could be doing better in terms of diversity in the arts in Ireland - and what kind of organisations are currently helping to shift the conversation.

Skein Press co-editor, Grainne O’Toole, and poet Jessica Traynor also share their experience of collaboration: and why it’s vital to put more support in place for writers from under-represented communities.

Signing In: The ‘New Irish’ Writers, is produced by Bairbre Flood and funded by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland under the Sound & Vision Scheme.
