Poetry Ireland Introductions

I'm delighted to have been selected by Poetry Ireland/Éigse Éireann for the Introductions Series 2011. We received a large number of submissions for this series, so congratulations on your selection.

The Introductions Series 2011 will take place in early May (dates TBC) in the Irish Writers' Centre. A free workshop with poet Alan Jude Moore is also offered as part of the Introductions series. This workshop should be of assistance in terms of preparing both the poems and the poet for a public reading. The workshop with will run on Saturday 2nd April, 2011, 11a.m.– 4p.m.

I knew a number of those who were selected last year, Peter Goulding, Connie Roberts, Andrew Caldicott, Martin Dyar. Two of those have won the Patrick Kavanagh Poetry Competition.
