Join poet John W. Sexton and Kerry County Museum curator Helen O’Carroll for two unique creative writing workshops on Saturday 2 and 9 September from 11am – 1pm.

Guided by writer John W. Sexton, participants are invited to respond creatively to a selection of War of Independence & Civil War artefacts from the Kerry County Museum collection.

Poems composed during the workshops will be collected and preserved in a special Poetry as Commemoration archive housed in UCD Special Collections. Participants who have family stories or materials relating to the revolutionary period are invited to share these, but no family connection is necessary and all are welcome.

Please note that participants should attend both workshops. One ticket allows access to both workshops on 2 and 9 September. This is a free event but booking via Eventbrite is necessary: Book Now
