Listowel Writers' Week literary conference in County Cork, there will be something for all, from lectures to awards, all of it centered on word play.
The list of workshops promises something for every writer, from the short story to the song and everything in between.
Song writing with Mickey MacConnell? Brilliant. Aifric Campbell's instructions on getting that novel started? An experience not to be missed.
It wouldn't be a proper literary event without prizes, of course.
Sadly, one winner will not be able to attend.
He's serving time for murdering his wife, and then there's the issue of his gift that the prison service doesn't care for.
Eamonn Lillis beat his wife to death, but he's made good use of his time since then. Behind bars, he found his inner muse and penned an award-winning short story in the "jailed" category.
Not only will Mr. Lillis be unable to accept his award in person, but he can't even accept it until he's served out his sentence.
The lovely Cross pen, suitably engraved, would make an equally lovely shiv and so the prison service has told him he'll be declining until such time as he is out of prison.
Until then, his inner muse will have to respond to a keyboard, under supervision.
Maybe Mr. Lillis will come out a changed man who will write a modern version of The Ballad of Reading Gaol.
But does he have Oscar Wilde's wit?
