Writing workshop: A Sense of Place

Join us during Book Week Scotland for a creative writing workshop with poet and writer Patricia Ace.

In this workshop we will look at poems that conjure a distinct sense of place. Through consideration of how ideas of physical and psycho-emotional place are translated to the page, we will probe our unique, individual memories and imaginations to create a place of our own in poetry or Prose.

‘These poems are wonderfully exuberant. Fierce and tender, brave and unafraid, they fizz with life and energy.’ – Vicki Feaver

‘Ace’s work…leaves the reader with a profound sense of hope, her imagery and the musicality of her language making connections between ideas and disparate times and places, drawing them into a quiet circle of regeneration, tenderness and healing. This is a poet writing at the height of her powers.’ – Anna Crowe

There are limited spaces for this free event. If you need to cancel your space for any reason, please email taigh@taigh-chearsabhagh.org as soon as you can so we can offer it to someone else.

Patricia Ace will also read her work at a poetry evening in Taigh Chearsabhagh on Tuesday 15th November.

If you would like to support our continued programming and enable us to keep offering free events, please consider making a donation to Taigh Chearsabhagh.
