You Have the Words – A Poetry Workshop with writer and poet Joanne McCarthy

Poetry Day Waterford, supported by Waterford City and County Arts Office, invites you to join this workshop that will explore using the language of our everyday in poetry.

“If you have the words, there’s always a chance that you’ll find the way” Seamus Heaney.

The workshop will look at contemporary poets and their use of language. Time will be allocated for writing and for creating new work. Poets will be invited to share their writing during the workshop and via email afterwards if they would like feedback on their work.
