Write By The Sea is a literary festival set in the
intimate fishing village of Kilmore Quay, Co Wexford. It offers a
platform for established and emerging authors to explore and explain the
process of writing for keen readers and would-be writers. The 2018 programme for Write By The Sea includes interviews with well-known authors, John Banville, Jennifer Johston and many others, talks and experiential workshops on Working with an Agent, Getting Your
Book Published, Writing for
Theatre, Crime Writing, Song Lyric Writing, Story Telling, Poetry,
delicious lunches, refreshments and convivial conversation!

 

Overlooking the
picturesque Saltee Islands, the inspirational setting of Kilmore Quay is
also an appropriate location in which to celebrate the international
achievements of Irish authors and to encourage new writing across all
genres. Eminent participants have included travel writers Dervla Murphy and
Geoff Hill, authors Donal Ryan, Cat Hogan, Peter Murphy, Marcus
Connaughton, Tom Mooney and Jackie Hayden, poets Thomas McCarthy, Jim
Maguire and Joe Neal, playwright Billy Roche and award-winning
children’s author Sarah Webb. Write By The Sea workshops have covered such essential
topics as getting started in writing, approaching publishers, marketing
your book via the Internet, writing poetry, writing for the stage, tv
and radio, general journalism and music journalism. Write By The Sea has become a must-see event in the Autumn literary calendar!
