Online Poetry Workshops for Aspiring and Emerging Writers


Again this Autumn The Gallery Press is delighted to announce our offer of three online poetry workshops by Gallery authors: Peter Sirr, Andrew Jamison and Grace Wilentz.

We invite two levels of applicants – Aspiring (to encourage those beginning to write and who are at the start of their adventure towards publication) and Emerging (for those with some experience and publications). These courses will provide an ideal platform for participants to explore the creative process of writing under the guiding eye of an experienced, published poet in the company of a community of similar writers. Attention will also be paid to the procedures toward publication in magazine and book form.

We invite submissions from writers of all backgrounds and particularly encourage and welcome underrepresented voices. Application is open to Irish poets (resident anywhere) and to poets currently resident in Ireland. Applicants must be over 18.

Previously successful applicants are not excluded.

Each workshop is made up of four one-and-a-half-hour sessions which will take place once a week. A fee of €25.00* for your chosen workshop will be payable when a place has been offered and you have accepted the offer. Fees must be paid in full within three days of acceptance.

Workshops are limited to 12 participants. (See below to find which course best suits your level and schedule.)
Workshop fee €25.00 for four sessions. (*Concessions available to unwaged/low income).

Places will be offered based on work submitted. Please state which workshops interest you, in order of preference. Please see application instructions on your chosen workshop (link below). Submissions should ideally be in Word or pdf format. (Please include all three of your poems in one document.)

Applications can be made from August 21 for all workshops. We expect these workshops to fill quickly and advise early application. Booking will close on 15 September 2023.
