There are plenty of ways to get involved with your nearest Poetry Town.  

Our Poetry Town homepage lists all 20 Poetry Towns for 2021 but you can also see which is your nearest Poetry Town on our handy map

If you’d like to take part in local events, check out this town’s Activities Page.  All of the Carrick-on-Suir activities are also on this day-by-day programme, available in a PDF.


Poetry Town posters have been distributed to the local co-ordinator in each town to be shared and displayed in the windows of homes, businesses and schools. But if you need access to print one out, you can find it here.  

And speaking of local co-ordinators, we’re delighted to share who is looking after each Poetry Town and we thank them for all the hard work they are putting in, along with the Arts Office for each town.
