Taking The Leap Into Poetry

Our event will be a poetry workshop which will be facilitated by myself, join myself, Áine O'Neill and fellow poet Vera Rooney. Toastmasters is a public speaking organisation but we always read a poem at the beginning of our sessions. In this workshop myself and Vera will go through the building blocks of writing poems. Things such as sharpening our senses, becoming attuned to our inner voice, noticing everyday triggers or glimmers of ideas that occur rather than looking for them explicitly. The workshop will be suitable for beginners and everyone will go away with their own poem at the end of the workshop. Toastmasters is all about "taking the leap" into something new and honing your skills. Our members are all good sports! We hope to deliver a pleasant, inspiring and engaging workshop to our members for Poetry Day Ireland! We have to have it the night before the main day itself as this is when our meetings are.
