West Cork Literary Festival 2017
West Cork Literary Festival presents an extensive programme of readings, workshops, seminars, panel discussions and children’s events.
At the heart of the West Cork Literary Festival’s extensive programme is the schedule of five and three day workshops in Coláiste Pobail Bheanntrai. These workshops cover such subjects as the novel, travel writing, script writing, poetry, creative writing for beginners, writing for children and much more.
The main evening events are held in the Maritime Hotel and in recent years have featured Mary Robinson, Ahdaf Soueif, Lord Melvyn Bragg, Sir Michael Parkinson, Michael Palin, Nuruddin Farah, Michael Morpurgo, Michael Holroyd, Annie Proulx, Margaret Drabble, Fay Weldon and many more.
There are free readings in Bantry Library and Bantry Bookshop, afternoon seminars, book launches, panel discussions, coffee and chat events and an opportunity for Munster novelists to enter the JG Farrell Award.
Another great highlight for aspiring writers is the opportunity to schedule a session with West Cork Literary Festival’s Editor in Residence Hannah Griffiths. She will go over, discuss, and appraise your work. A unique opportunity!
