National Children's Literary Festival and some Cygnets

Doorway to the past

Entrance to The Seanchaí where Listowel's literary history comes to life. The Seachaí summer programme is HERE


National Children's Literary Festival 2017

This Listowel Community Centre. This was the venue for all of the children's events at Listowel Writers Week.

Nicola Colton was the artist chosen to design the cover for the children's events brochure 2017. She was thrilled to see her characters brought to life by Miriam Slemon and the teenagers of KDYS.

The teenagers in Xistance decorated the hall for the various events. They did a great job.

Holly Webb was one of the main attractions for the children. She is a hugely popular author and North Kerry children obviously love her. They came out in droves to attend her workshop and reading.


Friends Reunited

Writers Week is a great time for meeting up with old friends. I happened on Fr. Anthony Gaughan renewing acquaintance with old friends, Georgie and John Molyneaux.
