John Hewitt International Summer School

28 July - 01 August
The John Hewitt Society was formed in 1987 to commemorate the life and work of the renowned Northern Irish poet who died that year.

The Summer School is an internationally renowned festival of literature and the arts. The School adopts a specific theme each year and provides a safe, neutral and unthreatening space to explore these themes. The School takes place in the wonderful, modern surroundings of the Marketplace Theatre and Arts Centre in Armagh.

Each year it attracts people from all over Ireland, Britain, Europe and the United States. To experience the wide range of distinct, though linked, cultural events, including creative writing workshops, poetry study, discussion and readings, open debate, music, drama, film and visual arts.

The residential nature of the Summer School provides opportunities for people from all communities to live, work and socialise together throughout the week, encouraging interdependence. In order to maximise participation, the School works in partnership with local councils, arts organisations, community organisations and businesses to provide bursaries to individuals who might otherwise be excluded to attend the School.

The 27th John Hewitt International Summer School will take place from Monday 28th July – Friday 1st August 2014 in the Market Place Theatre, Armagh. A feast of arts and literature, the 27th John Hewitt International Summer School will bring together in Armagh’s Market Place Theatre high profile writers, artists, performers, speakers and critics to consider a selected theme, inspired by John Hewitt’s poetry.
