These will be an opportunity for poetry and story to be spoken and heard at Common Ground. This will include supporting those who have found their voice here on a workshop or retreat in being heard. Visiting authors and poets will also have the opportunity to speak into this landscape.
We made a start with this work during the spring of 2017 with a collaboration between the Ulster Wildlife project Magnificent Meadows and the Fermanagh Writers Group. A group of poets spent an evening on the farm to be inspired by the place and the land. They returned to participate in an event called Meadow Musings when they read their poems at specific points out on the land that inspired their poem.
You can read the poems for yourself here:
The readings were followed by a brief writing workshop in the barn.
