A writing course for Christmas?

These are tempting from Yvonne Cullen.


Self-contained one -day poetry course, focusing on areas of skill chosen by participants in advance, and designed to fire up your poetry furnaces. This year, poetry students from Writing Train have been shortlisted for the important Bridport Prize, for the Strokestown Poetry Prize and for the Hennessy Award!
Venue: Glasthule (On dart line, Sandycove station)
Running time: 10.30 – 1.00 and 2.30 – 5 p.m with a break for a dash to Cavistons deli for lunch and chance of a quick run to the sea while we’re at it, plus option to eat together at Poppies café in Dunlaoghaire when afternoon sessions end, to chew over the day and go on talking poetry! Day will be completely tailored to students’ areas of interest and you’ll take materials away. NB: This will be more of a tutored course with exercises and discussion than a workshop.

If there is a quorum for a “workshop” day on SAT 11th DEC this is also an option as a follow-on – fee: €125 for both.

Sat 16 JAN €70 (One Day Course) START TO WRITE
City Centre venue, full day to get you going, to help you find the material that’s already within your reach and help you surprise yourself with your skill! This course will use my favourite techniques and approaches plus lots of focused discussion and materials to take away.

She also does longer courses.

Sounds like a good idea. Some real Christmas cheer in these dismal times.
