Welcome to Listowel Writers’ Week, Ireland’s longest running literary and arts festival where writers, artists and poets gather in our beautiful Kerry heritage town of Listowel in Co Kerry. Founded in 1970, the dream of Listowel Writers’ Week was a simple but daring one: transform a beautiful Kerry heritage town into a centre of the literary universe. Make it somewhere writers and book-lovers from all corners can gravitate to for a celebration of literature and imagination.
Many thanks to everyone who attended Listowel Writers’ Week 2019 – we hope that you enjoyed it and got some good writing advice from it
