I can’t apply for this as I’ll be just back from the USA (my book tour!) but, wow, I so wish I could do this workshop. Here's the lowdown from Poetry Ireland and Kilkenny ArtsFestival:
When: Tuesday 11 August, 10.00am
Where: Heritage Council Garden, Kilkenny
Tickets: Free, by application
Polish your pantoums and hone your haiku in this workshop with the former US Poet Laureate.
In this workshop for poets, Robert Pinsky hopes to find examples of the relation between sound and imagination, discovery and purpose — some of the quick, intuitive processes of poetry.
Participation is by application. Anyone wishing to take part in the workshop should submit up to 4 poems for consideration together with a brief note outlining previous publication details (if any) to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is Wednesday 8 July, 5pm. Successful applicants will be contacted by 13 July. Places are strictly limited.
