Creative Reading Workshop - Galway


A series of ten evening workshops suitable for those of all ages with an interest in contemporary poetry but who may appreciate a little guidance will commence in Galway Arts Centre on January 20. If you have ever wondered what that poem you have just read was all about then this is the course for you. What has happened to rhyme? Is contemporary poetry difficult and obscure? These workshops, led by Gerard Hanberry, will look at the work of some of today’s leading poets including Seamus Heaney and Paul Muldoon and will explore ‘how to read a contemporary poem’.

The exploration of contemporary poetry should also prove useful to writers taking their first steps into verse; the sessions will be relaxed and enjoyable with space for questions and discussion. The workshop tutor, Gerard Hanberry whose new collection Something Like Lovers was recently published, is an award-winning writer with two poetry collections. He is also a teacher and the holder of a First Class Honours MA in Writing.
