About Homespun Sails
Homespun Sails is an online anthology of original work created by students of the IES Abroad Dublin Writers Program. The name Homespun Sails was inspired by a moment from Seamus Heaney's poem 'From the Republic of Conscience' (1987):
At immigration, the clerk was an old man
who produced a wallet from his homespun coat
and showed me a photograph of my grandfather.
It is our ambition that students experience meaningful academic and cultural education opportunities while studying abroad, and do so as ethical travelers. Thank you for taking the time to view the pieces shared here. All are welcome.
