Volunteering at Poetry Ireland

15th October 2018

Poetry Ireland runs a number of vibrant contemporary poetry events throughout the year at our premises in Parnell Square, Dublin. We are seeking energetic and friendly volunteers to help us out at our events over the coming season.  

We usually ask volunteers to help us out at one or two public events per month, which typically take place in the evenings between 6.30pm and 9pm. Duties include serving wine and beverages, managing the door, and liaising with Poetry Ireland staff to ensure that all readers and visitors feel welcome and comfortable at Poetry Ireland.  

If you are interested in volunteering during autumn/winter 2018/19, please let us know by 31 October. We’d just ask you to email Elizabeth Mohen at info@poetryireland.ie with a brief paragraph about why you’d like to help Poetry Ireland in its mission to connect people with poetry. Prospective volunteers will be asked to come into Poetry Ireland for a brief, informal chat.
