Write By The Sea is a literary festival set in the intimate fishing village of Kilmore Quay, Co Wexford. It offers a platform for established and emerging authors to explore and explain the process of writing for keen readers and would-be writers.
The programme for Write By The Sea includes a generous mix of talks, readings, interviews and workshops. Overlooking the picturesque Saltee Islands, the inspirational setting of Kilmore Quay is also an appropriate location in which to celebrate the international achievements of Irish authors and to encourage new writing across all genres.

Write By The Sea has become the place to be on the last weekend of September every year and is now a key event in the Autumn literary calendar.
Bringing writers of quality literature and discerning readers together in a unique, boutique festival in an intimate village setting. Literary Fiction, Poetry, Historical Biography, Arctic Explorers, centenary of James Joyce's 'Ulysses' and much much more.
