Magical Realism in Poetry Course

It's all happening in Cork.
(Or is it)

When: Monday 10 January · 19:00 - 22:00
Where: The Long Valley (Hayloft) in Winthrop Street, Cork

O'Bheal: Cork's Weekly Poetry Event

This practical workshop will look at how to set off Dali-esque flights of fancy and explore treatments for the ideas that emerge. The workshop will focus on the idea that the strange and surreal in poetry can make us look at reality afresh.
