Chisel - Poet as Sculptor

This session will consider brevity, whittling our poems to a luminous core. Participants will bring a tricky poem in progress, or an abandoned draft, and set to sculpting it. A class for the brave, participants will leave with a new short poem, as well as a newly-sculpted draft of an older poem.

Doireann Ní Ghríofa is a bilingual writer whose books explore birth, death, desire, and domesticity. Among her awards are the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature and a Seamus Heaney Centre Fellowship. She frequently participates in cross-disciplinary collaborations, fusing poetry with film, dance, music, and visual art.
