West Cork Literary Festival 2017

I will be reading along with other writers in Bantry Library from 5pm Friday 21st July at the final event of the West Cork Literary Festival 2017.  This reading is organised by Denyse Woods, writer-in-residence for Cork County Council Library & Arts Services.  Denyse is working with five writers groups in Bantry, Clonakilty, Cobh, Macroom and Charleville Libraries. 

I attend the writers group in Macroom Library where up to 10 writers meet monthly.  Denyse has brought a focus and structure to the group since getting involved earlier this year.  Each writer brings a unique voice with the majority writing prose.  I have challenged myself to write prose and on Friday will read one piece of prose along with a selection of poems.

I look forward to hearing all of the writers representing these groups.
