Sixteen poets selected for the Poetry Ireland Introductions Series 2015

8th March 2015

We’re delighted to announce that the poets selected to participate in this year’s Introductions Series are Paul Bregazzi, Rob Buchanan, Stephen Connolly, Elaine Cosgrove, Andrew Deloss Eaton, Michael Dineen, Simon Lewis,  Éamon Mag Uidhir, Jennifer Matthews, Julie Morrissy, Michael Naghten Shanks, Helena Nolan, James Conor Patterson, Stephen Sexton, Rosamund Taylor and Bogusia Wardein.

These 16 emerging poets were chosen by an independent established poet, from a record number of 130 applicants. The selected poets will participate in a series of workshops on the craft of writing and speaking poetry, before going on to take part in a public reading in June. We’re very much looking forward to working with this year’s intake group, and hope that the Introductions Series will provide them with many valuable creative learning opportunities.
