Listowel Writers’ Week – Competition Deadlines

One of the greatest literary weeks of the year is looming so, for anyone interested in books and writing, the place to be from the 1st to the 5th of June is Listowel. Tickets are on sale now. For writers, there are 2 weeks left to enter one of the many competitions, from full-length plays to poetry and essays. There is a prize fund of €40,000 in total.
