Fermanagh Live is proud to present some of the finest local amateur writing talent – a group who have been putting pen to paper since 2009, providing support and encouragement to each other and creating opportunities to perform and share their highly entertaining work whenever possible.
Over 2 sessions during the festival, Fermanagh Writers will share with audiences their writings on life and love and all the things that make up the dramas of everyday life – the humour, the tragedy and the romance. They capture the highs and lows of life in works of fact and fiction and in writing that blurs the boundaries between both. You’ll discover short stories, poems and reminiscences that are as diverse as the authors, and that are funny, moving, reflective, satiric and thought provoking.
This latest performance, set in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, follows regular showings at festivals and literary events and the publishing of their first collection of stories, memoirs and poems, Tuesdays at Charlie’s, which was shortlisted in “Writing Magazine’s 2012 Writers Circle Anthology Contest.”
Fermanagh Writers was formed in March 2009. Originally Fermanagh Creative Writing Group, the name was shortened in March2012 to fit easily on the spines of their books. A small but active group, its members’ diverse backgrounds, writing goals and experience has created a unique entity in Fermanagh. Some members are just discovering their writing voice while others are regularly published, seasoned scribes. Their prose and poetry will entertain, amuse and give the listener or reader pause for thought.
Join Fermanagh Writers for A Patchwork of Words, an informal afternoon of poetry and prose, on Friday 4th at 4pm and Saturday 5th October at 1pm in the Presbyterian Hall, where you can also see Piece By Piece – A Patchwork Story.
