Bailieborough Poetry Festival

Bailieborough Poetry

The third Bailieborough Poetry Festival will take place over the weekend of 9 & 10 October 2015.

The LitLab group of writers are again organizing a weekend of readings, workshops, open mic session, book launch, etc. Visiting poets will include Niamh Boyce, Tony Curtis and Patsy McDermott.

A volume of exciting new writing by LitLab members based on a project they have been involved in for the past eight months will be launched by Myles Dungan during the festival. More details later!

One of the highlights of the weekend in past years has been the live adjudication and announcement of the winners of The Bailieborough Poetry Competition.

The Bailieborough Poetry Prize competition has a closing date of Friday 25th September 2015. The first prize is €250 and there will be a second and third prize.  There will also be a prize for a writer resident in Cavan or Meath.
