Through examples and exercises, Emily Cooper will show participants how collaboration can offer poets the chance to expand into new spaces. A word, a line, a new angle can set the writing off on a new tangent that possibly we wouldn’t have followed alone, taking us to places we previously hadn’t envisaged. This session will be a chance to meet new people, spark off ideas and create poetry that couldn’t be made alone.


This session is supported by Doire Press and the Arts Council of Ireland
