Today’s theme is Stuff and Nonsense: join writer Sarah Webb to create some funny and whacky stories, word games and poems!
A view of Irish literature from Prague
Join us on Wednesday 19 May at 6pm for a special event hosted by the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art in Prague. Margaret Kelleher, Chair of Anglo-Irish Literature and Drama in UCD, MoLI’s Director Simon O’Connor and MoLI’s Digital Curator Benedict Schlepper-Connolly will join DOX’s Michaela Šilpochová and Prof. Ondrej Pilny to discuss MoLI, Irish literature in translation, and curating literature in museums and galleries. The event will feature readings from Doireann Ní Ghríofa, Sara Baume, Mike McCormack and Caitríona O’Reilly, in both the original and in Czech translation.
In this Bright Sparks Creative Burst explore hidden stories by using everyday junk found around the house to inspire us to create some original pieces of work. With a little inspiration from Sarah Crossan’s #wearethepoets postcards, Sarah Webb uses blackout poetry and highlights words to make a poem. Download the materials to create some poetry or prose of your very own!
In today’s edition, children’s author Sarah Webb explores the wonderful world of colour and encourages you to use your imagination and add details in your work to truly bring your characters and stories alive! So, what’s your favourite colour?
