A Path to Publication Workshop will be offered by Lepus Print, a new Sligo-based publishing houser, at the 2021 Allingham Festival. The workshop will help writers clarify the nature and direction of their writing, improve their craft, and develop publication-worthy manuscripts. Writers of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and children’s books who seek to hone their work for publication are invited to apply.

Led by Lepus Print publishers and authors Brian Leyden and Mary Branley, the on-line workshop invites applications from writers worldwide. Places are limited to 12 participants, with a confirmation fee of €15 to be paid on acceptance to the workshop.

Applicants are asked to provide a summary of their experience in writing and publishing, a description of their goals and work-in-progress, and copies of five poems or two chapters of prose by October 1. See the Competitions tab on the Allingham Festival website www.allinghamfestival.com for detail on application procedures.

The 2021 Allingham Festival will take place between November 3-7. Featured guests will include soprano Regina Nathan, actor/comedian Seamus O’Rourke, journalist Tommie Gorman and professor of Irish Literature in English Frank Shovlin. The schedule and location of events will be posted on the Festival website www.allinghamfestival.com. Festival activities are being planned include a mix of live and on-line events, subject to public health guidance.

Major funding for the 2021 Allingham Festival is provided by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports and Media.
