Literature and Public Art Event

This is a good idea. BUT BIG BIG BUT, it's on a Tuesday. So any writer who has a full time job, or perhaps small children to mind CAN'T GO. COP ON PLEASE Poetry Ireland/Dublin Co Co. Artists and Literature artists in particular often hold down full time jobs while writing.

They're really limiting the type of writer who can participate, learn and share.

As part of the Dublin City Public Art Programme, The Arts Office, Poetry Ireland and Children’s Books Ireland are collaborating to present a development day focusing on literature and public art.  This day will combine presentations of literature as  public art, focus on practicalities and a briefing on the Dublin City Public Art Programme to be announced later in the year.   The even takes place in The Lab Foley Street  on 18th May  from 9.45  – 4.30.  There is a fee of €10 which includes lunch at the Lab.  Booking is through   

Date:              18th May, 2010
Time:              9.45 – 4.30

this sounds like a wonderful event. i am a first time novelist with a novel coming out next winter and definitely could have used help navigating the tricky process!

This sounds great and also scary. What if nobody sat beside me at lunch? Either way it's hypothetical as I still am in Galway, and therefore don't have to freak out about stuff like that.
I'm rambling now.

Good for you Priya! Congratulations :)
