Doolin Writer's Weekend
27 March 2015 - 29 March 2015
The Doolin Writer’s weekend, now in its third year, consists of workshops in novel writing, short story writing, poetry writing and song-writing. The weekend features an eclectic mix of music, food, poetry, theatre and literature. One of the big aspects of the weekend is that we are running a short story competition judged by Eilis Ni Dhuibhne with a prize fund of €1000 & publication in The Clare People and a Poetry Competition judged by Salmon Poetry also with a prize of €1000 It is a great opportunity for aspiring writers as well as literary fans & published authors to get together and celebrate everything that is good about Irish Literature. Many artists and writers spent time in Doolin, including J.M. Synge, George Bernard Shaw, Dylan Thomas, Augustus John and Oliver St. John Gogarty. This spring we look forward to welcoming back some of Ireland’s best writers to North Clare.
