News about our Chamber Music Festival Masterclasses and Literary Festival Adult and Young People's Workshops.
Ireland might be in the middle of a second lockdown and staff might be working remotely but West Cork Music is as busy as ever with a programme of online events organised for these final months of 2020 and planning underway for our 2021 Festivals.
Editor & Agent Sessions Booking Now
Despite the cancellation of the 2020 West Cork Literary Festival, we are happy to announce that our popular Editor-in-Residence sessions are being moved online. Our Editor this year is Federico Andornino, Editorial Director at Weidenfeld & Nicolson. There will also be an online Literary Agent event on Thursday 16 July with Kate Burke of the Blake Friedmann Literary Agency.
2020 J G Farrell Award
The J G Farrell Fiction Award is for the best opening chapter of a novel-in-progress by a writer resident in Munster. The prize is a place on the online Novel with Paul McVeigh workshop. The deadline for entries is Friday 5 June.
COVID-19 Plans in the Making
We are glad to be able to announce that streamed and online versions of this summer’s West Cork Chamber Music Festival and the West Cork Literary Festival will replace the live versions cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Irish Government’s COVID-19 Roadmap is enabling us to come up with plans for Masters of Tradition in Bantry in August.
