Literary Workshops


The future lies with what’s affirmed from under’  Seamus Heaney

It is the dream and hope of all literary festivals that the next prize-winning author, maybe the next Nobel Laureate, will take his/her first steps towards greatness at that festival. Listowel Writers’ Week takes that hope closer to reality with our annual series of workshops that provide the affirmation that Heaney wrote about so eloquently. From the absolute novice to the more confident practitioner, there is something for everyone. The best and most experienced teachers are there to guide you. Your fellow participants are there to encourage you. Why not join us and affirm your future whilst at Listowel Writers’ Week 2014!  A warm and literary welcome awaits.  Seán Lyons, Chairman
