How is our use of language shaped by the place from which we originally
come? What is the relationship between landscape and lyrical control?
During this relaxed and fun group session with Irish poet Ní Churreáin,
students will be encouraged to draw upon autobiographical experiences of
built and wild environments to explore the art and craft of composing
poetry. Using the central theme of origins, this three-hour engagement will
create a space in which you can use creative writing to experiment with text,
gain confidence in the process of generating ideas and to begin editing
poems. Join us for a reading from Ní Churreáin’s Bloodroot collection,
discussion and activities including written exercises. No previous experience
of writing required. All welcome!
