Carousel Creates Poetry – A workshop with Enda Coyle-Greene
W.B. Yeats once wrote, ‘‘ A poem comes right with a click like a closing box." To discover how that can happen, get immersed in verse during an all-day workshop at Carousel Creates. Explore the line break, find freshness and vitality in language and imagery, and the importance of reading before writing: just some of the elements that go into the making of a successful poem. Participants will be engaged in writing exercises designed to be both informative and fun and are invited to bring along a poem with which they would like some gentle, constructive help. There will also be practical advice on how to present your poems when submitting to magazines and/or competitions.
The workshop is suitable for anyone who is writing or wants to write poetry.
Numbers will be limited to ensure maximum participation.
