3 x two-hour online workshop sessions with Seamus Heaney Award winner Kathleen McCracken

Workshop Description

With a focus on reading and writing poetry, this series of workshops will address the ways in which contemporary poetic form is becoming increasingly hybridised. We will consider both the challenges of writing poetry that is in dialogue with art forms including short fiction, memoir and film, and the impact this work has on readers and writers alike.

The workshops will be hosted online using Zoom meeting software on the following dates. 

  • Monday 26th July 2021, 1430hrs to 1630hrs
  • Tuesday 27th July 2021, 1430hrs to 1630hrs
  • Thursday 29th July 2021, 1430hrs to 1630hrs

Your £66 fee covers all three workshop sessions.
