Poetry Workshop (no experience necessary)!
Starting off in the new garden space of North Clondalkin Library, enjoy a range of writing exercises as well as reading poems from Ireland and Japan that help us attend to the natural world. Following on from this, participants will be able to pick up on images that are all around to write their own short, nature poems.
