The Song House is delighted to present a special weekend retreat for writers of poetry at all levels. Hosted by Donegal poet Annemarie Ní Churreáin, the programme will feature poetry workshops, readings and one-to-one feedback sessions. Unfolding over two nights and three days, this retreat will offer poets a space to explore, reflect, share, dream and(re)connect with your creative voice in the lap of Errigal Mountain, and among the echoes and shadows of the ancient mythological gods. Solas, meaning ‘light’, is the theme for this weekend and we’ll be illuminating page, space and imagination through language, literature and community.
Provisional programme (details to be confirmed)
• Friday night – welcome reception with readings
• Saturday morning – creative writing workshop
• Saturday afternoon- visit to The Poison Glen with a workshop
• Sunday morning – morning event/ Farewell
Each participant will also have an opportunity over the weekend to meet one-to-one with facilitator Annemarie Ní Churreáin for a 30 minute discussion about writing or practice.
Participants are expected to bring writing materials. All hand-outs and photocopies will be provided by the workshop organisers.
