FESTIVAL OF READING AND WRITING FOR YOUNG ADULTS

Waterford City, November 10th-11th, 2017

The Lit Festival of Reading and Writing for Young Adults will run from 10 to 11 November 2017 with lots of events and workshops for young readers and writers (aged 15 – 19), including Open Mic poetry and writer’s block workshops.

On 11 November, the 10.15am Dublin to Waterford train will host a dedicated carriage for the LIT’s Writers in Training. Along the way, writers Stephen James Smith and Colm Keegan will work with young people on creative writing, before they all stop off for the festival. On the journey back, there’ll be even more creative writing to come.

The Lit Festival has gathered some impressive names for the festival, like Kevin Barry, Lisa McInerney, Claire Hennessy, Erin Fornoff, Dave Lordan and Colm Keegan to name but a few.
