Ivy Bannister

Welcome to the official website of author, playwright and poet, Ivy Bannister.


Ivy writes plays, fiction, memoir and poetry. She also writes for radio, and has published numerous articles in the popular and not so popular press.


She lectures on various subjects, some of them literary, some of them not, and occasionally teaches creative writing.


She was born in New York City and emigrated to Dublin, Ireland, just as pounds/shillings/and pence were giving way to decimalisation. Her BA is from Smith College, Mass., and her PhD from Trinity College, Dublin. Nowadays she moves back and forth between the two great cities that have nurtured her.
