THE GALWAY Arts Centre will host poetry workshops in May, facilitated by the acclaimed Galway poet Kevin Higgins.
Each workshop will run for eight weeks and will take place on Tuesdays from 7pm to 8.30pm (first class May 3 ); on Thursdays from 2pm to 4pm (from May 5 ), and on Fridays from 2pm to 3.30pm (starting May 6 ).
The Tuesday and Friday workshops are open to complete beginners as well as those who have been writing for some time. Thursday is the Advanced Poetry Workshop, suitable for those who’ve participated in poetry workshops before or had poems published in magazines.
Kevin is an experienced workshop facilitator. His best-selling first collection, The Boy With No Face was short-listed for the 2006 Strong Award for Best First Collection by an Irish poet. He is also co-organiser of the Over The Edge reading series.
Classes cost €90/80. Places must be paid for in advance. To reserve a place contact Victoria at the Galway Arts Centre, 47 Dominick Street on 091 - 565886 or email [email protected]
