April is Poetry Month in Limerick
WRITING POETRY FOR CHILDREN WORKSHOP WITH ALAN MURPHY
Sat. 25th April 10am to 1 pm.
Limerick Writers’ Centre, 12 Barrington St., Limerick
Children’s poetry offers unfettered access to the childlike imagination, and
can be serious or funny, whimsical or weighty, educational or just plain
entertaining. Often the unsung younger sibling of adult poetry, it offers a
fresh way of looking at the poetic form, and at the world in general.
Through a series of ingenious exercises Alan’s workshop will help to
awaken a mischievous muse in every budding the childrens’ poet.
Alan Murphy is the Dublin-born writer and illustrator of four collections of
poetry for young readers, two of which have been shortlisted for the CAP
awards for independent authors. He has been featured in children’s poetry
anthologies in the UK and America, has published poetry for adults and
visual art with a number of journals, and has giving readings and
workshops at many festivals over the years. His most recent book is All
Gums Blazing. www.avantcardpublications.com
