A poetry workshop with award-winning poet Ron Carey, Limerick

Deadline: 18 Apr 2020

Don’t dump those old poems – upcycle them!

We all waste energy on poems that seem to be going nowhere. It’s time to take a new, fresh approach to writing poetry. Positive choices about content and theme can reduce waste (of time and temper). Instead, let’s try to repair, reuse and upcycle your ideas to make the most of the poems you already have. And in the future, put yourself in the happy position of always creating your own environment when writing poetry.

Workshop takes place on Saturday 18 April at the Limerick Writers’ Centre, 12 Barrington St., Limerick, 10am to 1pm

Workshop fee: €20. Booking essential. Email: limerickwriterscentre@gmail.com Tel 087 2996409
