The Word Online

The Word, a collaboration between Sligo Libraries and the IT Sligo BA (Hons) Writing and Literature Course, is a literary event held on the last Wednesday of every month in Sligo Central Library.

Due to the restrictions brought about by Covid 19 The Word will be moving online. It will follow the popular format of readings from an established writer and an up and coming special guest, followed by Q & A, and an open mic section of 3 minute slots for 10-12 pieces of poetry/flash fiction/music/song. The online version will be broadcast on Facebook live as well as through Zoom and will include music from Sligo based musicians.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
