THE GALWAY Arts Centre will host poetry workshops with the acclaimed Galway poet Kevin Higgins in January.
Each workshop starts on the week of January 21 and will run for 10 weeks. Classes take place on Tuesdays (7pm to 8.30pm ), Thursdays (2pm to 4pm ), and Fridays (2pm to 3.30pm ).
Tuesdays and Fridays are open to both complete beginners and those who have been writing for some time. Thursday is an advanced poetry workshop, suitable for those who have participated in poetry workshops or had poems published.
Kevin has published three collections of poetry - The Boy With No Face, Time Gentlemen, Please, and Frightening New Furniture. His essays and reviews, Mentioning The War, was published this year by Salmon Poetry.
The cost is €110, with a concession rate. Places must be paid for in advance. To book contact the Galway Arts Centre, 47 Dominick Street, on 091 - 565886 or email [email protected]
