THIS SEPTEMBER Galway Arts Centre is offering aspiring poets a choice of three poetry workshops, all facilitated by poet Kevin Higgins.
Kevin is an experienced workshop facilitator and several of his students have gone on to achieve publication success. One of his workshop participants at Galway Arts Centre won the prestigious Hennessy Award for New Irish Poetry, while several others have gone on to publish collections of their poems.
Each workshop will run for 10 weeks, commencing the week of September 14. They will take place on Tuesday evenings from 7pm to 8.30pm Wednesday afternoons from 2pm to 3.30pm, and on Thursday afternoons from 2pm to 3.30pm.
The Tuesday evening and Wednesday afternoon workshops are open to complete beginners as well as those who have been writing for some time. The Thursday afternoon workshop is an advanced poetry workshop, suitable for those who have participated in poetry workshops before or had poems published in magazines. The cost to participants is €110, with a €100 concession rate.
Places must be paid for in advance. To reserve a place contact Victoria at reception at Galway Arts Centre, 47 Dominick Street, phone 091 565886, or email [email protected]
