The WORDS event is a spoken word event that takes place on the first Wednesday of every month at The Art Hand in Bunmahon, County Waterford. All are Welcome from writers and poets to literature lovers and storytellers.
Have your say or sit back and be transported to exotic places!
The WORDS event founders include the poet and writer Tom Power, Sean Corcoran of The Art Hand and Róisín Power Hackett, poet and artist. The event began back in July 2013 as a performance based writers group but has evolved since then to become a monthly celebration of literature and creativity.
We encourage dialogue with performers and general conversations about subjects that are raised but we rarely engage in critique unless a writer has specifically asked for feedback on their work. Nobody is put under pressure to perform and we like to think that the event creates a stimulating and nurturing environment. It’s great to catch up each month with each others latest endeavors and to encourage each other to be creative.
