Event description
Reading other people’s letters: A workshop in transcription. Facilitated by Dr Úna Kealy

About this event

This workshop will provide a short insight into what it means to read and transcribe literary correspondence working from handwritten documents in all their complexity and uniqueness. The workshop will ask participants to notice, evaluate, decrypt and transcribe letters sent by Teresa Deevy to her friend and fellow playwright Jim Cheasty. The workshop will be interactive and participants will require old fashioned technologies such as pencil and paper and will consider postage stamps, special cancellation marks and postmarks in nerdish fashion. The workshop is designed as 30 minutes of epistolary delights!

Part of the Irish Government's Keep Well campaign which is aimed at showing people of all ages how we can mind our own wellbeing by adding a range of initiatives to support individual and community creativity in the arts, crafting, culture and heritage.

It will also run during our Bealtaine Festival.
