Online Poetry Workshops for Beginning and Emerging Writers
The Gallery Press is delighted to announce an exciting new initiative, Gallery Goes Workshopping. This Autumn they are offering online poetry workshops with four Gallery authors: Peter Sirr, Grace Wilentz, Ciaran Berry and Andrew Jamison.
The first series invites two levels of applicants – Beginning and Emerging Writers. These courses will provide an ideal platform for participants to explore the creative process of writing under the guiding eye of an experienced, published poet in the company of a community of similar aspiring writers. Attention will also be paid to the procedures toward publication in magazine and book form.
Submissions from writers of all backgrounds are welcome. Application is open to Irish poets (resident anywhere) and to poets currently resident in Ireland. Applicants must be over 18.
Each workshop is made up of four one-and-a-half-hour sessions which will take place once a week. A fee of €25.00 for your chosen workshop will be payable when a place has been offered and you have accepted the offer. Fees must be paid in full within three days of acceptance.
Workshops are limited to 12 participants. (See below to find which course best suits your level and schedule.)
Workshop fee €25.00. (Concessions available to unwaged/low income).
Places will be offered based on work submitted. Please state which workshop interests you and send via email three sample poems together with a short biography (including information on any already published work) to email@example.com. Submissions should ideally be in Word or pdf format. (Please include all three of your poems in one document.)
Applications can be made from 25 August for all workshops.
