What can we learn from Irish language voices? Where can poets who are new to the Irish language, or returning to it, begin?
Join facilitator Annemarie Ní Churreáin for a creative writing workshop that explores the art and craft of writing poems by drawing inspiration from a range of contemporary Irish language poets and translators. In a supportive and encouraging environment, participants will learn to identify resonant poetic themes, and gain insights into the dynamics at play in the making of a poem. Workshop activities will include creative writing prompts, close reading of poems, and group discussion. No fluency or previous experience of the Irish language required.
Annemarie Ní Churreáin is a poet from the Donegal Gaeltacht. Her publications include Bloodroot (Doire Press, 2017), Town (The Salvage Press, 2018) and The Poison Glen (The Gallery Press, 2021).
