IN JANUARY, the Galway Arts Centre will host a choice of three poetry workshops, facilitated by the acclaimed poet Kevin Higgins.
There will be classes on Tuesdays, from 7pm to 8.30pm, starting January 17 and on Fridays from 2pm to 3.30pm, starting January 20. Both are open to both complete beginners as well as those who have been writing for some time.
The classes on Thursdays from 2pm to 4pm, starting January 19 is an advanced poetry workshop, suitable for those who have participated in such workshops before or had poems published in magazines.
Kevin is the author of three collections of poetry - The Boy With No Face (2006 ), Time Gentlemen, Please (2008 ), and Frightening New Furniture (2010 ). A collection of Kevin’s essays and book reviews, Mentioning The War, will be published by Salmon Poetry in the New Year. Salmon will also publish his next collection of poetry The Ghost in The Lobby in early 2013.
Each workshop will run for 10 weeks. The cost is €110/100. Places must be paid for in advance. To reserve a place contact Victoria at the Galway Arts Centre, 47 Dominick Street (091 - 565886 or [email protected] ).
