This six-week course is ideal for beginner writers, or those who are new to poetry. We will explore different approaches to writing poetry, with the aim of building up a body of work. Participants will discuss image, metaphor, rhythm, sound, the shape of the poem on the page, and then be challenged to respond to a series of fun and inspiring exercises. Favourite poems will be shared as forms of inspiration. There will also be workshop elements for those who would like to share their work with the group. 

Jessica Traynor is a poet and creative writing teacher from Dublin. She is Deputy Museum Director at EPIC the Irish Emigration Museum. Her second collection The Quick was published by Dedalus Press in 2018. 

Here's What Other Writers Thought:

"This course has inspired me.It has given me tools to improve my writing. It has made me want to write and made me believe in myself as a possible writer." – Eithne de Lacy
"The course was a great introduction to writing poetry and to finding your creative voice. As someone who hadn't done much creative writing in the past, I thought Jessica was able to cater to everyone's needs in class and help me build some confidence to write (and especially the catalyst to start writing!). I'd definitely recommend to people who want some encouragement to start writing more and to find a group of like-minded people."Caitleen
