WA 6160
  • Fremantle


Join us for a unique opportunity to work with one of Ireland’s foremost poets in a workshop where we’ll explore the gift that poetry provides and ponder on the part that writing played in sustaining the Fenians and how poetry sustains us today.

The Festival’s visiting Irish poet, Tony Curtis, will treat us to a feast of poetry which is as sure to support our cultural connections today as it did for the Fenians, 150 years ago. 

What to Bring: A note book and pens for writing, an open mind and a willing heart.

Some sponsored places are available for young writers. Please contact for details
