Plans for blogging 2010 Festival

March 06, 2010 By: Paul O'Mahony Category: 2010, starting up

On Friday, I met up with Jeremy Gould in Cork. We talked over the options for Listowel Writers’ Week 2010.

We had to consider whether we’d continue this blog for another year? We’re in touch with Patrick Stack of course. The three of us are keen to publish this blog again for the 40th anniverary festival, at the start of June.

We are planning. This means imagining how we’ll do it. Most importantly, how shall we involve others?

We intend to invite others to join us.
We’ll do our best to set up a team of people – so that the workload won’t be too much for anyone. We’re going to draft in invitation – so that people can see whether they’d like to help keep this blog going.

Please get in touch if you’d like to help in any way.

Is there any news about LWW2010?

Or is it all under wraps… in committee?

Does everyone know that LWW10 will be number 40?

It means that the planners must be wondering how they can mark the occasion fittingly. It’s not as if there hasn’t been enough time to prepare for it.

No one’s approach this blog to see if we’ll be live for the 2010 Festival. That doesn’t surprise me because no one from the committee approached the blog during 2009. No one official contact – imagine.

It was as if we the bloggers were the elephant in the room.

I bet there are loads of ideas out there concerning how the 40th anniversary should be celebrated. The challenge is how to let others contribute their goodwill?

These are the kind of issues that cause the passion of bloggers to be engaged. If LWW doesn’t get it’s act together and engage with bloggers, what will bloggers do?

Answer: they’ll chatter about myopia on Twitter. It’s the world we live in now – so different from the locals who set up Listowel Writers’ Week.
