Sligo Central Library

Friday 14th of July


Age 13+

The Sestina is a form of poetry that follows a very specific pattern. It can seem intimidating but it doesn’t have to be at all, it can be a lot of fun!

Sarah will read a number of examples of a Sestina. Writers will choose a subject for sestinas to create plus, six words that will help reflect the theme / subject of our sestina.

Printed templates will be provided for the participants to use to form their sestinas.

Participants can decide the tone of their poem, there is a lot of scope they can play with (subject, voice, theme, audience etc.)

Limited space.
