Maura regularly gives readings and also runs workshops and poetry courses.
New poems by Bloodaxe poets Maura Dooley and Imtiaz Dharker featured in BBC Radio 4's Armistice Day Poems on Remembrance Sunday, 11 November. They introduced and read their poems 'Quiver' and 'Armistice' about the Irish and Indian soldiers who fought with the British in WW1. All the poems are taken from Armistice: A Laureate's Choice of Poems of War and Peace edited by Carol Ann Duffy and published by Faber & Faber in the UK.

SPRING POETRY MASTERCLASS
Maura Dooley will teach alongside poet Gillian Clarke on a Spring Poetry Masterclass at Ty Newydd in Wales next March. This masterclass is aimed at experienced poets, and will focus on a high level of critical discussion and participation. The course will be a unique opportunity for committed poets to further develop their writing. Group workshops will prompt the creation of new poems, with discussion of work in progress and mutual support offered in smaller groups. There will also be plenty of individual writing time and extra group workshops in the afternoons. During the week the tutors and visiting poet, Zaffar Kunial, will give readings of their work. Participants will contribute to and edit an anthology, which will be read in a celebratory event on Friday evening.
