While at Trinity, Darragh became interested in writing poetry and met many other local writers. Darragh would meet up with these writers at Mass Transit and later at Folio, local community bookshops. Some of the poets she worked with include, Diane Ward, Joan Retallack, and P. Inman. These poets came together to form the east coast branch of the Language group of poetry.
