The Wild Words Children's Book Festival is a special festival for children and their families to enjoy books, to meet authors, and to encourage an interest in creative writing.
While events throughout June are directed at young people aged 0 to 14 and co-hosted with children and young people's groups in different locations around Leitrim, the festival's centrepiece programme at the end of the month is for teenagers who have started to write their own short stories and poetry.
The festival is managed by a voluntary committee and it is made possible through the support of Leitrim County Council Arts Office, The Reading Room, and Leitrim Library Service. Wild Words is funded by The Arts Council, Leitrim County Council and the Irish Writers Centre.
