The Lost & Found Poetry Workshop with Eileen Casey

“It’s not what you’re looking at, it’s what you see” – Thoreau. 

Eileen Casey’s poetry workshop for 18+years will explore texts and images and offer new ways of writing poetry – honing critical faculties. Creative energies thrive and flourish on such challenges. Poetry sparks in the most unexpected ways. Family history, letters, postcards together with ‘unlikely’ documents (instruction manuals, posters etc.). Poetic gems have emerged from poets who’ve already attended this very popular workshop (recently booked out at The Irish Writers’ Centre).

 

“I recently completed the Lost and Found Poetry Workshop with Eileen Casey and wanted to communicate what a wonderful experience it was for me. I have learnt so much through the modules and exercises on the course. I loved the diversity of material on the modules and encountering so many new poems and poets. Being challenged to respond to different briefs every week was inspiring and receiving Eileen’s thoughtful and encouraging feedback an invaluable experience. “D.W.
