Gabriel Fitzmaurice – Writing Traditional Poetry or Song
11 in stock
Gabriel’s workshop will concentrate on writing poems, in either English or Irish as you wish, in traditional forms, especially those suitable for songs and recitations, ballads and broadsheets. So if you have ever wanted to try your hand at something like The Sally Gardens, The Cremation of Sam McGee or Bán-Chnoic Éireann Ó, this is your chance. Bring along something you have already written and would like advice about, or even just an idea that you would like to develop, and we can work on it in a friendly, constructive way. Examples of good traditional poems and songs, long-established and contemporary will be looked at. Take the plunge and join us in the tradition, and we’ll have fun along the way!
