Kildare Readers Festival 2016

I'll be teaching a poetry workshop as part of the Kildare Readers Festival this Saturday October 1st at 2.30pm in Maynooth Library.

It's free. Please sign up if you like to come along. It should be fun. 
“Poetry's oldest duty is preservation. The life we live eludes us as we live it, and when we are old we cannot credit what we have lost -- measured by the fragments that we keep…Because our civilization loves speed, change, loss, and forgetfulness, a poet's obligation is also a poet's opportunity -- to hold and keep, to make a stillness despite noise -- to praise, to celebrate, and to enact endurance. - Donald Hall”

This workshop is for anyone who would like to begin to write poetry or for those who already have some memories captured on paper. It will be a safe, supporting environment so you can leave with the draft of at least one piece of writing with energy and confidence.

Note: Bookings for this event through Maynooth Library 01 6285530 or

There are lots of other events in the coming fortnight, mostly around Riverbank in Newbridge. See the online brochure here or download the brochure here

All events are FREE of charge, but are ticketed, so booking is essential.
