Thank you for your support during 2019. Below are some of our many highlights of the past year. We hope you have enjoyed being part of our community and we look forward to an exciting year for the Limerick Writers’ Centre in 2020.

This year we held a total of 129 events made up of 12 ‘On the Nail’ Literary Gatherings, 26 poetry events during April Is Poetry Month in Limerick, 3 Bring Your Limericks to Limerick events, 4 Lunchtime Poetry at the Hunt Museum events, 16 books published, 3 Poetry Circle events, 1 Samhain Festival event and 50 Acoustic Club events plus 13 workshops.

We have had a host of local, national and international writers and performers take part in these events. Despite receiving no funding support for 2020 we will be continuing to grow our events programme nationally in 2020. If you have a suggestion you would like to make please email us at limerickwriterscentre@gmail.com
