Wild Words Book


The Wild Words Book is part of Carrick on Shannon’s annual Wild Words Festival and features writing by young adults from all over Ireland aged 14 to 18 years who have started to write their own short stories and poetry.

Submissions this year almost doubled from 2017 and the difficult task of selecting from them is now underway. Those selected will have their work professionally edited and published and also get free admission to a two-day writing masterclass at the festival in Leitrim on Sat 30th June & Sun 1st July 2018 with leading authors Dave Rudden, Anna Carey and Colm Keegan.
