This section of athlone.ie showcases works of writers from Athlone or those who have connections with Athlone and the surrounding areas. It is not surprising with such a wealth of local literary talent that we have an annual Athlone Literary Festival. The festival is aimed at readers and writers and all those who enjoy good conversation and good literature and it has featured many of the writers showcased in our 'Writings from Athlone'.
If you are from the area or live here and would like to submit published material, please mark it 'Writings from Athlone'. We accept submissions in poetry, fiction and non-fiction.
Welcome to the Poetry section of Writings from Athlone. Poetry by Oliver Goldsmith, Conleth Ellis, Vona Groarke, Paul Hoare, Gearoid O' Brien and Breda Sullivan is featured here so far.
Welcome to the Fiction section of Writings from Athlone where we have featured works by Joe Ducke and Joe Moore.
