STRANDHILL WRITING SUMMERFEST

 Lone surfer at Strandhill

Strandhill Summerfest takes place on the weekend of the 1st to the 3rd July 2011 in coastal Sligo. I was hoping to take part in it again this year but alas and alack I am otherwise occupied. I had a brilliant time at this festival a few years ago: lovely company, excellent tutors, a gorgeous setting and lots and lots of writing.

It costs €125, not including accommodation, but including lunch, snacks and a big BBQ, as well as all tuition.

Well worth it if you fancy a writing mini holiday with lots of fantastic writer-teachers like Ted and Annie Deppe, and the wonderful Órfhlaith Ní Chonaill all under the impressive shadow of Knocknarea. If you are going, I envy you :(

And "fie for shame" I can't hop across the heads of a zillion white horses to experience that. Lone surfers are much the best sight at the beach on a wild day...
