Listowel Writers' Week Fringe

Blogging Listowel's Literary Scene

Behind the scenes on LWW Fringe blog

Spam… the bugbear… we have a heap of spam comments piled up. It would be great to delete them all.

Because this is a labour of love (something from which we earn no income) it’s not easy to sort this problem.

The Festival is coming. It will be on us before we know it. It was about this time last year when we launched the blog. I hope we’ll publish a steam of posts before #LWW10 kicks off on 2 June.

Would you like to contribute content?
The Festival has so many aspects to it… We’ll publish all sorts of stuff around Listowel Writers’ Week. The people who go to Listowel for the workshops, literary events and publife have many interests.

This blog is here to pay honour to the wonderful tradition of the Festival. This is, after all, the 40th year. Get in touch with a comment. We’ll be reading them all, and responding.

    Dying for the festival again this year, but why oh why are Dublin putting their festival on through the same week? We have a dearth of festivals through a long bleak winter and then two deadly ones on at the same time. Boo hoo! What’s a body to do? I know where my loyalties lie….. plus the pint is cheaper in Keanes.

  2. I’ve moved the site to a new faster server, and also added a super comment-spam blocker, so we can kiss our spam problems goodbye!

  3. Evelyn,
    Thank you very much for your comment. I didn’t see it until today because of the huge number of spam comments that piled in awaiting moderation. Now Patrick Stack has sorted that, we are ready to resume action in earnest.

    Dublin Writers’ Festival on at the same time as Listowel Writers’ Week – how crazy is that. I suppose few Irish people are natural collaborators? It would be good to have the story of how these two festivals conspired to run at the same time.

    No matter, our job here is to bring LWW to the wider world – using all the media at our disposal. You’ll be in Listowel for Writers’ Week I see. How about helping us with this blog: we need content. This means we need people willing to write, report, take photographs, interview people – generate the content that others will be interested in.

    I’m going to put out a call for help soon. It’ll be a sort of fun-loving team of literary-inclined people who will all do their own thing for the cause. Would you join us please?
