Welcome to Way with Words, Wicklow - a programme of free events for readers and writers of all ages, taking place between March and May 2018 in Blessington and Arklow Libraries.

We have storytelling and illustration workshops for children as well as poetry readings and talks by novelists, crime writers and memoirists. There are fiction, memoir and poetry workshops for adults, blogging and graphic novel workshops for teens and much more. Meet bestselling, award-winning writers and poets from all over the county and country including Micheal Harding, Audrey Magee, Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick, Eoin Mc Namee, Julie Parsons, Oisín McGann, Jane Clarke and Catríona O’Reilly.

Also as part of Way with Words, writers and poets will travel around Wicklow, visiting schools, community groups and others. Micheal Harding will call into Men’s Sheds to swap stories over a cup of tea, the mobile library will be out and about with an illustrator on board and writing groups will work with author-facilitators David Butler and Tanya Farrelly. Playwright Billy Roche, poets Anne Fitzgerald and Seamus Cashman will be in residence in local schools as part of Reading Schools Wicklow so watch out for pop up readings and displays of students' work in the libraries!

Check out the programme and pop into a reading, be inspired by author recommendations, sign up for a workshop, come to a family event with the children but above all come along – we look forward to meeting you!
