Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Mark Doty came to Queen's as the Inaugural Seamus Heaney International Poetry Fellow in November 2018. In partnership with The River Mill Writer's Retreat (Downpatrick) and The Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry, I organised a day-long event with Mark Doty for our MA in Poetry students at The River Mill. I held an 'in-conversation' seminar with Mark on creaturely poetry in the morning, and he led a poetry workshop in the afternoon.
