Writers' Weekend - Sponsors


This is the fifth edition of the Doolin Writers’ Weekend. Since our first writers’ weekend in 2012 the weekend had been entirely self-funded by Hotel Doolin and our generous sponsors. This year we are delighted to partner for the first time with University of Limerick Creative Writing Programme. This is a very exciting association for us. The Creative Writing MA in Limerick is proving itself to be the most progressive and innovative writing programme in the country, we look forward to welcoming the MA writing students to Doolin and we would like to thank Professor Joseph O’Connor and the team at UL’s Arts and Humanites Department for their support. To learn more about the Creative Writing MA at UL, please follow this link

 Each year one of Hotel Doolin’s valued suppliers sponsors our Writing Competition. This year’s sponsors are as follows

Short Story Prize- €1000 sponsored by Richardsons Foods

Poetry Prize- €1000 sponsored by Flogas

Flash Fiction Prize- €500 sponsored by Bewleys

Our opening drinks reception is sponsored by Erne Wines and Writers’ Tears Whiskey
