Prose & Poetry with New Writers: Bernie McGill & Olive Broderick

Prose & Poetry with New Writers: Bernie McGill & Olive Broderick

A literary evening with two new writers whose recent publications have created much interest and excitement.


Bernie McGill’s first novel, The Butterfly Cabinet, was published to critical acclaim last year. Her short fiction has won prizes in the Michael McLaverty, the Seán Ó’ Faoláin and the Bridport Short Story Awards. For theatre she co-wrote The Haunting of Helena Blunden for Big Telly Theatre Company in 2010 and she wrote The Weather Watchers, a play for young audiences for Cahoots NI in 2006. She is working on a second novel in association with the Seamus Heaney Centre at QUB.


Originally from Co. Cork, Olive Broderick came to Northern Ireland to undertake the Creative Writing MA at Queen’s University Belfast, she settled in Co. Down in 2003. In 2009, she was one of the Poetry Introduction series readers and won a Hennessy X.O. Literary Award in the Emerging Poetry Category for the same year. In late 2010 she published Darkhaired, a Templar Pamphlet which was nominated for the Michael Marks Award 2011. She works for the Ulster Wildlife Trust and is working on a new collection of poems.
