KEVIN HIGGINS, the acclaimed Galway based poet, will host three online poetry workshops, starting in January, and facilitated by the Galway Arts Centre.
The workshops will be conducted via Zoom in a friendly, supportive manner, with constructive criticism to help writers create the best work possible. Full details of how the workshop will function online will be explained to participants during the first session.
