POETRY DAY JAN 8th.
Self-contained one -day poetry course, focusing on areas of skill chosen by participants in advance, and designed to fire up your poetry furnaces. This course will lead on to new term of Developing Poet workshops starting Sat 15th Jan. This year has been a great year for poets at Writing Train, with longterm students and past students shortlisted for the important Bridport Prize, for the Strokestown Poetry Prize and for the Hennessy Award!
Venue: Glasthule (On dart line, Sandycove station)
Running time: 10.30 – 1.00 and 2.30 – 5 p.m with a break for a dash to Cavistons deli for lunch and chance of a quick run to the sea while we’re at it, plus option to eat together at Poppies café in Dunlaoghaire when afternoon sessions end, to chew over the day and go on talking poetry! Day will be completely tailored to students’ areas of interest and you’ll take materials away. NB: This will be more of a tutored course with exercises and discussion than a workshop.
Writing Train vouchers may not be used for this course fee, but may be used for all long course fees where an early booking discount has not already been applied.
