Poetry Pharmacy

The Wyatt Hotel - Lane Suite

Sunday 27th 2.30pm - 4.00pm Monday 28th 2.30pm - 4.00pm


Inside Westival’s poetry pharmacy, poets and authors will prescribe potions and word remedies for ailing creatives afflicted with writer’s block, lethargy or weak headlines. Suffering scribes can discuss their work, read a piece, listen to a poem being read, have a chat about writing or simply be indignant and passionate about life between the lines.

Facilitated by empathetic wordsmiths Kelly Michels, terry McDonagh, Roberta Beary and Michael Gallagher.

These workshops are 20-30 minutes long. Max four people at a time. Young people and adults welcome.
