Poetry Sunday, 3 August: Cherry Smyth will lead a poetry workshop in Ardgroom from 10.30am to 4.00pm, and at 5pm the winning and shortlisted poems from the Poets Meet Painters competition 2014 will be announced and read, followed by an open mic session, at Mill Cove Gallery — see Events & Information for further details.

Hungry Hill Writing was originally established for writers on the Beara peninsula in Ireland, but our competitions and readership now have an international following, and we welcome contact with anyone who is interested in the kinds of writing that can be found in our Online Anthology—read and (we hope) enjoy! If you are interested in contributing, please see our Submissions page. Feedback is also welcome via the Contact Us page.

For those interested in meeting others on Beara who write, or want to write, there are active writers' groups; if you would like to know more, see the Writers' groups page.

We also organise readings, courses and workshops from time to time; see our Events & Information page for the latest information.

As a small non-profitmaking organisation we run our publications and competitions on very tight margins; if you feel you could support our activities financially, click here.
