The Western Writers' Centre are holding a literary festival in Gort County Galway next week-end.
Nessa O'Mahony and Jessie Lendennie are giving poetry and publishing workshops, respectively; other readers include Geraldine Mills and Knute Skinner.
Gort is midway-ish between Galway and Ennis and has its own literary links, though this is its first lit fest. Lady Gregory's Coole Park is nearby as is Yeats's Thoor Ballylee. Worth the trip!
