European Blurandevù

European Blurandevù is based on interview and presenting skills. A group of young people will be provided with training to present themselves and their ideas, ask questions and step into the role of interviewer. Attendees will then be given the opportunity during the West Cork Literary Festival to introduce writers, conduct an interview and take questions from the floor during these specific events.
