The primary aim is to deliver a high quality international literary festival driven by the long-term cultural benefits to the participants, the town of Lismore and the greater South East region.
This is the only festival dedicated to the medium of travel in Ireland. By bringing a host of top international and national authors, the festival is giving both the presenters and participants a unique opportunity for interaction and exposure to this genre, while also catering for the mainstream literary area. The festival offers the community/audience the opportunity to participate in 4 days of total immersion in the arts through exhibitions, readings, lectures, workshops and street theatre.
Each year the programme works around a theme focussing on an aspect of travel writing. Authors and presenters explore this theme based upon their own works and experiences. The open mic session provides a platform for new and emerging Irish poets, workshops are designed to encourage participants to pursue creative writing.
