Poetry is the beating heart of community life in 20 Poetry Towns across the island of Ireland this September.

The people and communities of each Poetry Town are celebrating poetry in their everyday lives and surroundings, creating communal experiences, and celebrating the pride, strength and diversity of each town. Poetry Town is an initiative of Poetry Ireland in partnership with Local Authority Arts Offices and is made possible with funding from the Arts Council of Ireland’s Open Call funding, and is also supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
