The second annual Way With Words Literature Festival is back, with a packed programme of events that will shortly take place in Arklow and Blessington Libraries.
Way with Words was first established and curated in 2018 by curator Nell Regan on behalf of Wicklow County Council’s Arts and Library services. Arts Officer Jenny Sherwin in partnership with Executive Librarians Margaret Birchall and Claire Fullam has curated the line up for 2019. The Festival has been made possible through the Creative Ireland Programme, supported also with investment from Wicklow County Council.
The programme is free with workshops, talks and events during the daytime and in the evening time. There are several opportunities also for schools. Wicklow County Council would like to acknowledge the contribution of all of the library staff involved in presenting these events. With thanks also to Producer Michelle Heming, Valerie Bistany, Irish Writers Centre and Maureen Kennelly, Poetry Ireland.
