The Skylight Poets are a group of poets who meet with poet and facilitator Kevin Higgins to workshop their writing in Galway Arts Centre on Thursday afternoons. The room they use is at the top of no 47 Dominick Street, the attic with skylight windows, hence the name of the group. Participants in the workshop have won a variety of prizes for their work, including the Hennessy Award for Emerging Poetry, The Cúirt New Writing Prize & The Cúirt Poetry Grand Slam. Several have published poetry collections with publishers such as Salmon, Doire Press and Lapwing.
