The first Shore Writers' Festival takes place on the first weekend of November at the Ocean Sands Hotel, Enniscrone, County Sligo. This most innovative festival is particulary aimed at young writers and is the brainchild of Elizabeth Reapy.
Galway writers Kevin Higgins and John Walsh will be in conversation with each other on the Saturday afternoon of the festival (2.30pm, November 3rd).
Later that evening there will be a reading by Doire Press writers and Susan Millar DuMars will launch the anthology 30 under 30, published by Doire Press, which showcases the work of thirty fiction writers all of whom are under thirty years of age.
