The Children’s Festival

The West Cork Literary Festival is keen to encourage the next generation of writers. Through its Children’s Festival it has developed a rich and varied programme of events for young people, from age four up to teens.  Past readings and workshops have been led by award-winning writers such as Bridget Hourican (The Bad Karma Diaries); Niamh Sharkey (I’m a Happy Hugglewug); Alan Nolan (Sancho series); Darren Shan (Zom-B) Bruce Ingman (The Pencil) and poet Dave Lordan. Workshop topics include comic books, illustration, picture storybooks, dooding, writing and reading poetry, devising plots and inventing characters.
