Join us for a streamed video event with the winners and runners-up of this year’s Trócaire Poetry Ireland Poetry Competition performing their poems, as part of Culture Night 2020. The annual poetry competition uses the arts to raise awareness about current global citizenship, justice, ecological and equality issues.
As a physical awards ceremony isn’t possible due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are celebrating the winners of the competition with a special streamed video event. This takes place on Poetry Ireland’s YouTube channel at 6pm on Culture Night.
You can visit the YouTube page at 6pm to watch it stream or register in advance for an Eventbrite ticket
Time: 6pm - 7pm

This free Zoom workshop with Julie Morrissy invites you to write your first poem. The workshop will cater to beginners, and participants will not need any prior experience of writing or publishing poetry.
Over two hours, the group will learn how to read poetry from a compositional perspective and how to draft your own poems, beginning by writing a few lines and building towards full poems. Participants will be given time to complete writing exercises during the workshop.
However, there will be no expectation for participants to share their drafts during the session. Instead, Julie will offer brief feedback via email in the week following the workshop.
The focus during the workshop will remain on learning, and experimenting with style, form and the page.
Time: 5pm - 6pm
