POETRY WORKSHOP WITH JANE CLARKE

Jane165HiResSaturday, October 8th, 12.30pm-3pm – Los Gatos Lodge – $100

Award-winning poet Jane Clarke will facilitate a two-and-a-half hour workshop on the theme of “Writing from Stillness”

“Writing from Stillness” focuses on creating new pieces of writing by inviting you to slow down and connect with your creativity. Simple mindfulness techniques are used prior to writing to help you tap into a deeper reservoir of original material, pay attention to the sensory detail of the world around you, trust your intuition, and draw on your imagination. Suitable for beginners and experienced poets and prose writers.

Jane Clarke’s poetry collection, ‘The River’, is published by Bloodaxe Books. She won the Irish 2016 Hennessy Literary Award for Poetry. Her other awards include the Listowel Writers’ Week Poetry Collection Prize (2014) and the Trocaire/Poetry Ireland Competition (2014). She holds a BA in English and Philosophy from Trinity College, Dublin and an MPhil in Writing from the University of South Wales.

Workshop limited to 30
