Workshops

Literary workshops are synonymous with Listowel Writers’ Week. For over 50 years, we’ve welcomed guests and visitors to the heritage town of Listowel, creating an environment in which literature can be appreciated and where writers and readers celebrate the written word, together.

With a variety of workshops on offer and the opportunity to learn from some of the world’s most influential writers, there is something for everyone here. Booking is essential as places are limited on all workshops.
