Twelve poets selected for the Poetry Ireland Introductions Series 2019

1st April 2019

Poetry Ireland is delighted to announce that the twelve poets selected to participate in this year’s Introductions Series are Audrey Molloy, Jim McElroy, Joe Carrick-Varty, Angela Finn, Frank Farrelly, Emily S. Cooper, Ruth Quinlan, Paul McCarrick, Andrew Rahal, Mairéad Donnellan, Lorraine McArdle, and Anne Walsh Donnelly.

These emerging poets were chosen by award-winning poet Martina Evans from nearly 200 applicants. They will participate in workshops on the craft of writing and speaking poetry as well as professional development, and then showcase their work over the course of two cabaret-style evenings at Poetry Ireland on Tues 21 and Wed 22 May during the International Literature Festival Dublin. 

We’re delighted to welcome this new series of poets and hope that the Introductions Series will provide them with many new creative opportunities as they launch their promising writing careers.
