Budding travel writers in Carlow and Kilkenny are being encouraged to get involved with a competition for students across Ireland.
It’s being run by the organisers of the Immrama Festival of Writing, who are looking for Ireland’s best young travel writers.
Young travel writers in Carlow and Kilkenny are invited to submit an 800-word short story about their favourite air journey and where it has taken them on their travels.
It’s to coincide with the annual Immrama Festival of writing, which takes place in the heritage town of Lismore, Co. Waterford in June.
The competition is open to students aged between 13 and 18, and the closing date for entries is on the 20th of May.
It’s run in association with Aer Lingus, and the winner will receive and iPad mini and a 100 hundred euro Amazon voucher.
Anybody interested in submitting their Travel piece to the competition is asked to log onto www.lismoreimmrama.com/studentcompetition.
