A talk the Director of the Carlow Writers' Co-operative Group, Dr Derek Coyle (Carlow College/St Patrick's) gave at 'Tranås at the Fringe' about the work of the Carlow Writers' Co-operative Group. In the course of the talk he reads poems and prose by members of the group. Watch out for fine pieces by Doreena Jennings, Phelim Kavanagh, Simon Lewis, Pauline Flynn, Lucy Gahan, and Clifton Redmond.

The Carlow Writers' Co-Operative is a writing group that meets fortnightly in the course of term in Carlow town, and which aims to produce original creative work of a high standard by its members. Members of the group have won and been shortlisted in significant national and international competitions, and been published in national and international literary journals.

Here Dr Coyle outlines the philosophy of creativity behind the group and some of the practical ways in which the group operates. He mentions the Teach Dolmain, Carlow, the official home of the Co-Operative, and various allies within the town, Carlow County Library (John Shortall), VISUAL, Carlow, and Carlow College/St Patrick's.
