The Lismore Festival of Travel Writing | 11 – 14 June 2015

The Lismore Festival of Travel Writing
Venue: Various venues in Lismore, Co. Waterford

Immrama, The Lismore Festival of Travel Writing is a high quality international literary festival and the only festival dedicated to the medium of travel in Ireland. It is driven by the long-term cultural benefits to the participants, the audience, the town of Lismore and the greater South East region. By bringing a host of top international and national authors, the festival is giving both the presenters and participants a unique opportunity for interaction and exposure to the genre of travel writing, while also catering for the mainstream literary area.

The festival offers the community and audience the opportunity to participate in four days of total immersion in the arts through exhibitions, readings, lectures, workshops and street theatre. Each year the programme works around a theme focussing on an aspect of travel writing. Authors and presenters explore this theme based upon their own works and experiences. The open mic session provides a platform for new and emerging Irish poets, while workshops are designed to encourage participants to pursue creative writing.

The bi-lingual poetry workshops and storytelling for primary school children are organised to introduce this age group to the literary arts.

The four star self catering accommodation at Seacliff Holiday Homes, Dunmore East is the perfect location for all events within County Waterford.
