PenFest 2019: Why I Write with Beau Williams
1st November 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
“Why I Write” focuses on the importance of being vulnerable in your writing. This pushes the boundaries on what a poem is “supposed to be” and gives the writers the proper tools to address their emotions or experiences and express them in an effective way on the page. The workshop starts with a short introduction, then I’ll share a poem or two of mine and we’ll discuss what we think makes a poem. We will then talk about the importance of poetry and the crucial role it has played in my life. Next, we’ll write together and then afterwards we will share our work. The demographic for this workshop is anyone from 16-116. Everyone from first-time writers and heavily published authors are welcomed.
What: 3 hour workshop
When: November 1st
Where: Carlow Central Library
Time: Half day (1:30pm – 4:30pm)
