New developments in Listowel Writer's Week

Meet & Mingle at our New Writers’ Salon

Listowel Writers’ Week is very pleased to introduce an exciting and innovative feature to the festival this year in the form of a New Writers’ Salon, which will showcase some of the best and most exciting new writers in Ireland today.  This informal event will take place on two evenings – Friday 31st May and Saturday 1st June in Scribes Coffee House at 8pm, and is the brainchild of Noel O’Regan, who joined our literary Team in 2012.  Noel has been instrumental in organising the Salon, and is himself a published, award-winning writer.  Holding fast to the festival’s long-held tradition of encouraging emerging writers, there will be an open-mic session on both evenings. A resident editor and agent will also be on hand to answer your questions and offer guidance in getting your work published. This event is Free of Charge – no need to book – just pop in and say hello.
