Waterford Youth Arts’ Third Annual LiT Young Writers Festival
During the coming term and alongside their regular workshops, Waterford Youth Arts will produce the third annual LiT Young Writers Festival. Join them on Friday and Saturday, 15 and 16 November 2019, for this Festival of reading and writing for young people. The 2019 Lit Festival programme offers a wide range of local and national talent hosting a range of fun and engaging free and paid events in venues all over Waterford City.
This year the LiT Team is partnering with the ‘Laureate na NOg’ #wearethepoets project and is delighted to welcome Dublin-based author Sarah Crossan, author of One, Moonrise, and the recently released Toffee. Sarah will be joined by poet Elaine Feeney, an award winning poet from Galway who has released three poetry collections Where’s Katie?, The Radio Was Gospel and Rise, and Young Adult author Sarah Maria Griffin creator of Follies and Other Words for Smoke for a night of inspiration and insight chaired by director of CBI Elaina Ryan.
Another highlight of the programme will be the launch of a brand new anthology of work. We Already Have A Voice is a collection of poetry, stories and essays from the senior members of WYA's creative writing programme. More events will be announced shortly so keep an eye out on the Lit Young Writers Festivals website here.
