North West Words Writing Weekend

This sounds great. Good to hear of initiatives in the North West. Most of the literature news tends to be Dublin Centric. Let me know of any other events outside the pale and I'd be happy to help spread the word.

Letterkenny July 19-21 2013

Workshops and readings to inspire your writing

North West Words
North West Words has been hosting monthly poetry and prose readings in Letterkenny since 2010. We publish a quarterly magazine of writing and arts news which we distribute across Donegal free of charge. We run an annual schools poetry competition and last year our first poetry competition for adults. In the summer we go on the road and present events at festivals in Donegal. Remarkably, we run on donations, support from the County Arts Office and from Donegal Local Development Company Ltd (DLDC) under the Local and Community Development Programme 2013.
