It’s good to be aware of other literature festivals. It offers another perspective on Listowel Writers’ Week.

There will never be another literary festival like Listowel: it’s a snowflake loaded with a special atmosphere.

I’ve been to Cheltenham Literature Festival (now The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival) at least twice, maybe three times. I once competed in the UK Allcommers Poetry Slam, without distinction (but the top three performance poets were amazingly good).

This is Cheltenham’s offering this year…

Exactly 2 Weeks to go to the start of LWW

14 days… Time for 140 posts… 1400 comments…

I’m joking, but not entirely unserious.

We’ve had a real boost yesterday:

we have a new collaborator. He lives in Listowel, Kerry. He’s recently emigrated from London, England. So he offers a viewpoint we certainly don’t have already.

I don’t want to embarrass him by saying more. He knows his name and he can speak for himself. But I promise you this blog is much richer today.
