Poetry in Motion Community is a poetry project for local writers / aspiring writers. The programme focuses on practical outcomes and transferable skills.
Poetry in Motion Community not only encourages writers to write, but assists them in learning how to edit, plan, schedule, choose illustrations, market themselves, negotiate with others and speak publicly. Poetry is at the core of the programme’s activities, but additional projects are facilitated in any medium that involves creative engagement with text and/or performance skills. The work of local poets and writers has been promoted and brought to the general public through several publications and over 100 poetry performances, including BBC Radio 4 Poetry Slam – All Ireland Heat (2009).
