Virtual LF 2020 header

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.

Also please note that there are still some spaces left on the online Travel Writing workshop with Claire Nelson. Find out more about these events below.

Thanks to the support of Cork County Council we are delighted to offer participants these events at 50% of our normal ticket price.

Best wishes,
The West Cork Literary Festival team
