Introduction to Poetry with Jessica Traynor

Starts: Sat 20 June (not 13 June as originally advertised)

Time: 10.30am – 4.30pm

Duration: 1 Day

Cost: €80/€70 Members

This one-day course with Jessica Traynor will allow participants to explore various approaches to writing poetry. We'll be finding inspiration in our surroundings, in memory, and in visual art. We'll also be discussing metaphor, rhythm, sound, and the shape of the poem on the page. For those who'd like feedback, the afternoon will be dedicated to looking at reworking and redrafting poetry, so participants should feel free to bring a poem of their own that they'd like to share with the group.

Jessica Traynor is a poet and creative writing teacher from Dublin. She is Literary Manager of the Abbey Theatre. Her first collection, Liffey Swim, was published by Dedalus Press and is shortlisted for the Shine/Strong First Collection Award.
