One Day Summer Poetry Workshop at Writing Train


Poet Yvonne Cullen will run a One Day Summer Poetry Workshop at Writing Train in Glasthule, this Saturday July 16th.

Designed for a max of 8 students, this will be an intensive workshop day, allowing you in-depth feedback on two poems, plus considerable time for discussion and workshopping of your current practice and technical challenges as poets. As the day will take place in Yvonne Cullen’s home, proceedings will be further enriched by access to Yvonne’s library of poetry and writing on writing. Which is an ornate way of saying that Yvonne imagines she’ll be hopping up and down betimes all through the day fetching you poetry she thinks you really
need to hear and know about!

If you have been writing poetry for some time, whether or not you have been showing it to others and whether or not you have attended a workshop prior to this, there will be much for you in this intensive
poetry day.

And if you are free Saturday evening after our session finishes, the plan is for us to grab some pub grub together before coming back to Yvonne’s house for a WRITING SALOON reading and music night, featuring new songs from wonderful fiddle player Aifric Campbell and her partner, and readings from all and sundry, to a cosy crew of 20 max in-house.

Fee for the day is €90.

Email Yvonne at yvonnesworkshops@gmail.com or phone her on 086 1701418. Just a few places remain for workshop at this point.

There will be a full weekend of poetry workshops and technique intensive sessions with Yvonne at WRITING TRAIN on the weekend of 6 - 7 AUGUST.

And for further poetry workshops and classes with Yvonne, and peaceful time to hear yourself think, WRITING TRAIN goes to INISHBOFIN island in Connemara  for a weekend from 2 - 5 SEPT.
