The Poetry Line is open for calls on Poetry Day Ireland

23rd April 2020

The Poetry Line is a new initiative from Poetry Ireland and members of Aosdána, in collaboration with ALONE, which invites individuals who are currently cocooning to sign up to receive a phone call from a writer/poet who will read them two reassuring poems in celebration of Poetry Day Ireland on Thursday 30 April. 

In order to sign up, please call Poetry Ireland’s dedicated Poetry Line at  01 254 8856. One of our team will take your name, phone number, preferred time slot, and any particular poem requests (if you have one). This line will be open for sign-ups 10am – 5pm starting on Thursday 23 April.

Sign-ups will close at noon on Wednesday 29 April. The Poetry Line phone calls will then take place on Poetry Day Ireland (Thursday 30 April). 

Know someone who might be interested? We appreciate your help in getting the word out about this initiative to individuals who are cocooning and may not be on social media.
