Poetry Ireland Introductions


Poetry Ireland is inviting submissions for the 2008 Introductions series. The series is designed for emerging writers with a track record of publication in reputable journals and magazines, who are working towards a first collection.

THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS FRIDAY 15 DECEMBER.
A short biography and covering letter accompanied by a selection of ten poems is requested.
Poems may be previously published or unpublished.

Applications should be marked Introductions and sent to Poetry Ireland, No. 2 Proud's Lane, off St Stephen's Green, Dublin 2.
Selected applicants are usually informed within two months and, depending on the number of submissions, approximately 15 poets are selected each year. This year it was 20)

It's well worth while doing, get your name around. You also get to do a workshop and they pay a small fee for your reading.

I think they should also publish a pamphlet with a sample of the poets chosen. They get great crowds at the readings.

Hi EW, I just realised I never replied to your comment on my blog. I have done now, although I'm sorry it isn't more helpful!

Response here.

But I just realised, something I should have added, there are various bits of info on our website www.bookarazzi.com, which may or may not be useful. We continually add to it, so keep your eye on it.
