West Cork Literary Festival : Friday 12th - Friday 19th July 2019
For any poets or aspiring writers amongst the haulier and courier ranks, the West Cork Literary Festival is the ideal place to get the linguistic juices flowing. Learn from the best in the field whilst extinguishing the stereotype that all storytellers come with compulsory tweed blazers and elbow patches.
Just a 90-minute drive from the port of Cork, at the festival you can hear a number of talented writers perform their works and also hone your own skills in one of their many workshops.
