We are delighted to present our 2017 Workshops

“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.” Enid Bagnold

At Listowel Writers’ Week 2017 we will be hosting another series of our Workshops. These internationally recognised events and their inspirational facilitators will nurture you in an enthusiastic and creatively supportive environment. We offer you access to those who have already journeyed through the process and who are willing to share their expertise and experience on your own journey to becoming a successful writer. Elizabeth Dunn – Chairperson
