The Cork International Short Story Festival
19 septiembre 2012 - 23 septiembre 2012
Welcome to the world’s oldest and biggest short story festival. Every year it attracts writers and readers from across the globe to Cork to enjoy the craic and intellectual stimulation of an art form which is as varied as music in its tones and rhythms, its humours and subject matter. Cork takes pride in its association with, not only the great writers who were born here, like Frank O’Connor, Sean O Faoláin, Elizabeth Bowen and William Trevor, but also some of the world’s greatest practitioners of contemporary fiction who have come to this festival and keep coming back. In 2012 the festival will feature the big names known by regular readers – but will also seek out and include writers of excellence destined to become the big names of tomorrow. This year the festival takes place mainly at Triskel Christchurch – a site historically associated with Edmund Spenser.
