The WORDS Event is a spoken word event that takes place on the first Wednesday of every month at The Art Hand and other locations on The Copper Coast in 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!

Spoken Word, Poetry WaterfordThis is an opportunity to perform and share your knowledge although there is no obligation to take part. Relax and enjoy the show and get some inspiration if you’d prefer.

Here is a little video clip of our inaugural event back in July 2013;

The WORDS Event founders are the poet 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 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.

It’s a nice informal gathering with a great atmosphere, have a glass of wine at half time or mingle and meet each other with some of Miranda’s homemade cake and some tea….
