Poetry Slam – Omagh Literary Festival
We will rewind time and celebrate the centenary of Benedict Kiely’s birth and his rich legacy which has influenced the literary landscape of Ireland from Omagh to Dublin and across the Atlantic. This year the festival, 'Rewind Time' , opens up wonderful worlds of literature and imagination with a host of some of Ireland’s best novelists and writers. There will be opportunities to meet award winning novelists like Donal Ryan who write “The Spinning Heart” and listen to great stories, conversations and memoirs by Eamonn Mallie and Mary Kenny.
Poetry Slam will be hosted by well-known performance poet Frank Rafferty. This is an opportunity for poets to recite their poems in this interesting competition.
