CWCW Poetry Workshop with Poet Margaret Galvin
Enniscorthy Library, Lymington Rd,
Two sessions: 11am and 2pm
Wexford Literary Arts Festival is proud to announce its sponsorship of creative writing workshops for persons with intellectual disability and other support needs. The Festival is serious in its commitment to inclusivity and the belief that the creative arts are the preserve of all citizens. The Festival values the uniqueness of each individual’s voice and recognises the enrichment that occurs when real diversity and equality is embraced, when everybody experiences a real and cherished welcome.
Groups from County Wexford Community Workshop, Enniscorthy will avail of two writing workshops at Enniscorthy library on July 1st, the opening day of the Festival. Enjoyment, celebration and fun with words are guaranteed. Those participating will also be supported to reflect on their own experiences and see how that material is at the heart of creative expression. Creativity is all about shared community and common experience, regardless of whatever differences might be perceived to separate us.
These workshops are facilitated by Wexford writer Margaret Galvin who has a background in social care and works in disability support at Ard Aoibhinn, Wexford
