The monthly Poetry Nights in Brewery Lane Theatre, Carrick-on-Suir will resume on Friday next, 27th September at 8.15pm. This is a night for poems, poets and camaraderie. The format is very simple. Everyone who attends has the option to read two poems – they can be your own work or not. You might like to share a poem that is meaningful to you or one that you have just discovered, a poem that you have been working on but are unsure if it’s finished or one that you have had published. The theme for the night is ‘Food’ and you are free to interpret this in as broad a way as you wish.
For your diary the Poetry Night dates for the next few months are:
Friday, 1st November
Friday, 29th November – this will incorporate a tutorial with poet Mark Roper on preparing your poems for entering competitions. More details later.
Friday, 20th December
And in the New Year there will be preparations for the 2014 Brewery Lane Writers’ Weekend, to be held on the 11th, 12th, 13th April. This will include writing workshops with Dave Lordan, a seminar with Shem Caulfield and a poetry competition judged by Richard Hayes of Waterford Institute of Technology.
Writers in the south-east and beyond will certainly be busy over the coming months …
