This workshop will be held in a supportive space where you can unleash your love of poetry and is especially tailored to blind and partially sighted people. You’ll awaken your imagination as we encounter different creative prompts together and discuss techniques to kick-start new poems. You’ll also have the opportunity to explore the technique of collage poetry using 3D printed fragments of Braille and provide feedback on its potential use in transcribing future poems.

Bebe Ashley lives in Belfast. Her work is most recently published in bath magg, Poetry Ireland Review, and Modern Poetry in Translation. Her debut collection Gold Light Shining was published by Banshee Press.
In 2021, Bebe was longlisted for the Ivan Juritz Prize for Creative Experiment and awarded a Chair of Ireland Poetry Trust Award. Most recently, Bebe was selected as one of nine artists to receive a Digital Evolution Award in support of a project Confetti that explores the poetic potential of Braille and 3D printing.
