Join us for the opening reception of the 20th West Cork Literary Festival as we welcome audience members, workshop participants, festival sponsors and supporters and of course the writers who will be with us over the course of the week. The J.G. Farrell Fiction Award, for the best opening chapter of a novel-in-progress by a writer resident in Munster, will be presented during the launch.

This year’s artwork on the front of our brochure is On Our Knees, 1996-97, a painting by Hughie O’Donoghue. Acrylic on canvas, 122 x 152 cms. The image is courtesy of Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac University, Hamden, CT, USA.

The original painting may be seen in Coming Home: Art and the Great Hunger, an exhibition in Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre, Skibbereen from 20 July to 13 October 2018.
