Workshop: Making Poetry with James Harpur

Time and date

Monday 10 July 2023

3 days

10:00 am

This workshop will run from Monday 10 to Wednesday 12 July, from 10.00am to 12.30pm and again from 2.00pm to 4.00pm daily

In this series of six workshops we will concentrate on the craft of creating poems, focusing on different forms, such as ‘thing poems’ and poetic riddles, and various themes, including myth and memory.

Max: 15 participants

Admission: €230


There will be warm-up exercises, classic examples of poems, discussion, writing and presentations. The aim will be to give participants the chance to produce six new poems, at least in draft form. The sessions will be friendly but focused and are suitable for experienced poets and those who have started their poetry journey – what’s important is an open heart and mind and a willingness to have a go!
