Literary Festival Workshops

Ever since the Festival’s inception in the late 1990s, workshops for adults have been at the heart of the programme.  Encouraging both novice and experienced writers, they cover many areas of the discipline from how to get published to how to get past page one.

Billy Ramsell's Poetry workshopOur five-day workshops, still quite unique among Irish literary festivals, provide week-long opportunities for development and intensive learning not possible in one sitting.  Yet another highlight is the Editor-in-residence whose one-to-one sessions are proving very popular.
