Cork – Cork is buzzing with a lively literary scene and an abundance of Irish writers, and here at Mouse we know all about the writing bug. Our Mouse people include poets, writers, visual artists and film directors. We will be holding open mic events for anyone wanting to present their work. We also host a film club, contact us for membership details.

Apologies to mice for the following quote: – “I am impelled, not to squeak like a grateful and apologetic mouse, but to roar like a lion out of pride in my profession.” – John Steinbeck
