Winners will be announced at the inaugural Doolin Writer's Weekend on 24th - 26th May 2013.
John McKenna is this year's judge: acclaimed author of seventeen books including short-stories, novels, memoir, history and biography.
Doolin Writers weekend will consist of workshops, lectures and readings by some of Ireland's leading writers, as well as some great local traditional music. It is a great opportunity for aspiring writers as well as literary fans and published authors to get together and celebrate everything that is good about Irish literature. This summer we look forward to welcoming back some of Ireland's best writers for what we hope will become an annual literary event in North Clare.
