Dates for your diary.

“The next Words for Castleward session is the 11 May (a feedback session) with Poems on a Sunday Afternoon at the Down Arts Centre in Downpatrick on the 12 May. These sessions are there to help both budding and accomplished writers and feedback is always done in a very positive manner. Writers more than often need feedback from their peers and this is a great environment to do this,” said Olive.

Call out from Deep Down.

Olive added: “Paula Matthews has asked me to pass on details of the following call for poets or songwriters who want to showcase their work at our Deep Down Gets Creative: Lived Experience Arts Festival.

“All are welcome to read or perform in a relaxed setting and you can choose to add to the collection of works our poetry friendship table enjoy at our monthly meetings. The theme of our Get Creative mini-fest is ‘Keep Holding On’.

“This will be a community-spirited event welcoming those with lived experience of mental health to celebrate the healing power of creativity. We will be in an alcohol free room with disability access.

“If you wish to attend and read please email us at: deepdownarts@gmail.com by 15th April 2019 as spaces are likely to become limited.”
