24 Little Hours in Clonmel
This sounds great. Innovative:
Clonmel Junction Festival presents '24 Little Hours', A 24 hour participatory poetry and prose programme with Grace Wells, Mark Roper, Dave Lordan & Mia Gallagher.
Grace, Mark, Dave and Mia, four leading writers from Ireland's contemporary literary scene, will be in Clonmel for 24 hours. During their stay in the town, they will share their skills & experience with emerging writers and poetry enthusiasts, perform their work at set readings, and walk and explore the streets of Clonmel with workshop participants, giving insights into how a writer goes about their work, and develops their skills of observation and composition.
With workshop sessions taking place in locations throughout the town and over the 24 hours, the participants will see the urban landscape as it changes colour from busy shopping streets through the hubbub of Saturday night and into the quiet of Sunday morning.
On Sunday afternoon there will be an open-mic session at which the participants will have the opportunity to share some of the work they created during the twenty-four little hours.
It costs €35 to be part of 24 Little Hours and you can fill out an application form here.
