This weekend marked the final of the three XBorders:Accord sessions, with a last seminar in Belfast. Of course we took our writerly friends around the Ulster Museum, Botanic Gardens, Queen's quad, the Naughton Gallery and last - but certainly not least - to listen to some of the inspiring voices (including our very own Adam Trodd!) on the Poetry Jukebox at Crescent Arts Centre #changingthemessage
After a very pleasant morning of meandering in a shockingly sunlit Belfast, what awaited us within was a rather more rigorous and intensive seminar on sharpening our editing skills and really honing our writing to be the best that it can be. I am a terrible editor so this was a tough session for me but I feel like I have learned a lot from it and I hope the ideas will percolate well over the nextfew weeks as I prepare my work for the last few steps of the XBorders project - a 1:1 mentoring session and a showcase at the Irish Writers Centre in Dublin in May.
We had earned our wine after all that!
