Update: This year (2012) we running the Letter Cafe for the West Cork Literary Festival
Organico Cafe is delighted to be involved with the West Cork Literary Festival again this year. the Cafe will be the venue for the Literary Club, which will offer organic food and wine, as well as music, games and a literary quiz. We will open from 6pm - 9pm Monday to Thursday.
The West Cork Literary Festival is a festival for writers and readers alike and attracts at least 150 people to Bantry every year. The programme is very varied - the 2007 workshops range from song writing to media, poetry, and sportswriting - and this year Gavin Kostick of the Fishamble Theater Company is to tutor a playwriting Workshop. Elenaor McEvoy is coming to give the Songwriting Workshop as well as a live performance.
From what we have seen in Organico Cafe the Festival is throughly enjoyed by all the attendees. Many of those who are accepted for publication in the Fish Anthology come and of course the winner (of the €10,000 prize) is sure to attend. The comapartively small numbers mean the Festival creates an intimate and friendly atmosphere, and the Workshop attendees get a lot of hands on attention from the leaders.
