Whew! What a year for the world of literary festivals. We have really enjoyed meeting you online at our Zoom Room to Write Workshops throughout 2021 and of course at our 2021 Literary Festival in September last. What a joy it was to welcome over 25 writers and contributors to our first fully online festival and to enjoy their readings, interviews and interactive workshops. We extend a big thank you to all of our contributing artists for their commitment and creativity and for being all-round good sports, given the constraints of the pandemic. And of course we are grateful to you, our supporters for making Write By The Sea possible in 2021. While Santa’s elves are busy packing the sleigh, we are busy compiling a stellar programme for you for our 6th annual literary festival which takes place from 23-25 September 2022. We look forward to meeting you here in Kilmore Quay to enjoy the conviviality of our live festival and to celebrate the best of Irish and international literature. We hope that you and your families will have a safe and peaceful Christmas and that those presents that you are popping under the tree are books penned by our talented Irish and international writers. Keep reading and writing – it’s balm for the soul.
