Renowned poet Nessa O’Mahoney chairs a panel discussing First Collections with Brian Kirk, Eamonn Lynskey and Phil Lynch. How do you get your name known as a poet today? What constitutes a collection and who should you approach with it? Packed full of vital information on how the business works and tips for getting your own work published, find out what it feels like to hold your first book in your hand.
Following this, we have our Poetry Award Ceremony. This is a hugely popular event each year which receives entries from all across Ireland! This year we are honoured to have Mary O’Donnell, a renowned poet and novelist of exceptional talent, as our judge for the competition.
