Listowel Writers’ Week was founded in 1970 and through generous support and sponsorship over the years it has grown and become a literary beacon where writers and audiences interact and have fun in the rural and intimate atmosphere that is Listowel.

Leaving a charitable legacy can make a real difference to Listowel Writers’ Week and will ensure the high standard of the festival is maintained and enjoyed by future generations.

It doesn’t have to be large, all bequests are gratefully accepted. Whatever your gift Listowel Writers’ Week will ensure that it is invested in the promotion and preservation of literature performances from acclaimed and emerging authors.
