Poetry Depot by SpiritStore-InkStorm
When: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Where: Irish Landmark Trust, 25 Eustace Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2

Have an award winning poet write you a brand new poem on any subject you can think of! The Poetry Depots are a series of pop-up poetry shops which will be appearing all over Ireland. For Made in Temple Bar, four trained and award-winning writers will sit down with you one to one and engage in a process to write poetry with and for you on the spot.

They will write a poem on absolutely any subject and with any tone, from the ridiculous to the sublime, although they have a special interest in writing the poem that could have a great impact on a persons’ life; it could be declaring love or looking at new revelations or possibilities. Everyone gets to take their poem away with them!

Duration: The process takes 10-20 minutes of conversation, followed by the poet taking a similar amount of time to produce the poem.

Tickets: Free! No booking required, just come along. All are welcome to participate.

What: Poetry Depot Reading
When: 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Where: The Culture Box, 12 East Essex Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2

Featuring the Testify Poets: Dave Rock, Laurie Leech, Sarah Griff, plus guest

Collaborative poetry produced during Poetry Depot earlier in the day will be shared by the writers and the individuals they collaborated with to produce the work. This will be followed by a full set from the Flying Testify Poetry Squadron, a high energy, electrifying poetry performance ensemble. The Testify Poets are all both strong writers and major performance slam winners, coming together to give a show of great sweep and sparkle, as well as power.

All welcome!
