iYeats Poetry Competition 2012

The 2012 iYeats poetry competition was officially launched on Yeats Day, last Wednesday 13 June.

This online national and international competition has quickly won a prestigious reputation for the calibre of both entrants and judges. A nice touch is that they have previous winning and listed poems on their website. I was shortlisted in 2010 with Townlands and it's included with all the poems from that year here.
The judges for this national and international online competition this year are Theo Dorgan and Paula Meehan. Full details and online entry available, follow the link on the website.

The prizegiving for the iYeats Poetry competition will take place after the 11.30am Yeats Summer School lecture on Wednesday 1 August in the Hawk's Well Theatre in Sligo.
