The Waterford Writers’ Weekend (formerly Séan Dunne Writers’ Festival) is one of Ireland’s most prestigious festivals which each year brings together poets and authors to showcase their work and give new talent the opportunity to participate in the “Séan Dunne Young Writers Award” competition.
Some of the country’s award-winning and best-selling authors and poets are bound for Waterford for the annual Waterford Writers Weekend as part of the Imagine Arts Festival this October.
Waterford Writers Weekend promotes the craft of writing and celebrates creativity in all ages. This lively and engaging festival is filled with workshops, discussions, and debates designed to engage and delight audiences.
Creativity in youth is of special significance to the festival, and events for students, children and families serve to inspire the imagination.
