All Ireland Poetry Day this year takes place on October 6 and Mayo County Council Arts Office and Library Service have announced that on the day Mayo poets will have the opportunity to take part in Poetry Snack workshops at Castlebar Library on the day.
Poetry Snack workshops offer poets an opportunity to bring along a poem-in-progress for feedback. Martin Dyar and Susan Millar DuMars will be at Castlebar Library from 3pm until 6pm to offer one to one responses to individual poets about their poems and to engage with whatever other queries they might have.
Each one to one session will run for 15 minutes and must be booked in advance. Book on 094 9047558 or 094 9047936. There will also be open mic poetry sessions in the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar and Ballina Library. Both events start at 8pm. Contact these venues directly for more information — Linenhall Arts Centre 094 9023733 and Ballina Library 096 70833.
