Brewery Lane Poetry Night


Brewery Lane Poetry Night – some dates for writers:

Friday, 1st November 2013 – venue changed (for this night only) to the meeting room in The Old Mill, New Street, Carrick-on-Suir. The theme for the night is ‘Winter’ and you are free to interpret this in any way you wish. Bring two poems with you if you would like to read, and I encourage you to fully take part, it’s a friendly group. The poems you read can be your own work or written by another.

Mark Roper

Friday, 29th November 2013 Mark Roper (2013 Judge of the Brewery Lane Poetry Competition) will give a tutorial in Brewery Lane Theatre on preparing your work for submission to competitions. Mark’s recent collection, ‘A Gather of Shadow’, was shortlisted for the 2013 Irish Times Poetry Prize and he has just published ‘The Back Strand: Tramore’s Open Secret’, about Tramore’s tidal lagoon, in collaboration with photographer Paddy Dwan. See this Irish Times article. The tutorial will, I hope, encourage more of you to send your work out – we hear many fine poems read at the poetry nights and the next step is to polish them up and send them out into the world. Then, of course, continue to write more poems.

Grace Wells

Saturday, 30th November 2013 Poet Grace Wells will hold a one-day poetry workshop for secondary school students in Brewery Lane Theatre. This workshop is supported by the South Tipp Arts Office as part of Connex 13. Grace Wells won the Eilis Dillon Best Newcomer Bisto Award for her first book, the children’s novel, ‘Gyrfalcon’, which was also an International White Ravens’ Choice. Children’s books, ‘One World, Our World’ and ‘Ice-Dreams’ appeared in 2009. When God has been Called Away to Greater Things, her first collection of poetry, was published by Dedalus Press in May 2010 and won the Rupert & Eithne Strong Best Debut Award. This promises to be a very special opportunity for young writers in the area.

Friday, 20th December 2013 – usual poetry night in Brewery Lane Theatre. Theme TBA
