Seamus Heaney Centre Summer School, Belfast


So delighted to have been accepted on the prestigious Seamus Heaney Centre Poetry Summer School.
A week long of poetry critique, discussions and readings - but this year, due to Covid -  all online.  A fantastic way to hear and 'meet' poets of such talent and different approaches.  A bit of craic too, even though through the internet.  Our tutors were all brilliant: Nick Laird, Leontia Flynn, Simon Sexton.

TheBlackbird  is the emblem of the centre, named after a beautiful early Irish poem, translated by Seamus Heaney and many others.  'The Yellow Nib' is the SH Centre's poetry magazine.

A shame not to have been able to go to Belfast itself but certainly in the future I'll go in the flesh next time.
