Exploring Poetry & Activism
featuring Sarah Clancy, Emily Cullen & Eoin Devereux

What is the value of poetry in a world that feels like it is burning? Where does art and activism meet, and can poetry really make a difference? These are some of the questions Meskell UL Poet in Residence, Emily Cullen will explore on this year’s national Poetry Day in a special hour-long event that will take place online and is open to everyone. Joining Emily and poet Eoin Devereux, from the MA in Creative Writing programme, will be guest poet for the occasion, renowned activist, Sarah Clancy. This lunchtime event will include short readings by all three poets and will also offer some practical advice around integrating the political into the lyric space.
