This is done through literary panel discussions, moderated talks, poetry readings, interviews, cultural tours, walks and more.
President Michael D. Higgins describes Listowel Writers Week as the place where cruthaiocht is created. So whether you nestle into the hearth of John B Keane's pub for a reading, take a journey into the rich culture of scenic North Kerry in the Seanchai Centre or sit back and enjoy the musings of internationally acclaimed writers in the Listowel Arms Hotel;
