When Crime Pays with Martina Evans


‘Magic happens on the threshold of the forbidden.’ Maria Tatar.

Join Martina Evans for a workshop designed to develop your creative writing skills and techniques. 

The workshop centres on the breaking of boundaries. Using the body as a live camera to explore the suppressed corners of the imagination and extend each writer’s labyrinth, participants will use their raw material to create fresh work.  Looking at debt from both sides, we will be creating maps, pin-pointing out new roads for participants to explore in the future, beyond this workshop.

Suitable for both poetry and prose writers.


Martina Evans is the author of thirteen books of poetry and prose. American Mules (Carcanet 2021) won the Pigott Poetry Prize in 2022. Her latest narrative poem, The Coming Thing (Carcanet 2023) was a TLS Book of the Year. She is an Irish Times poetry critic.
