Poetry Ireland Introductions

The lovely Poetry Ireland are looking for inviting submissions for their Introductions 2009, a series of readings in the Spring which offer poets working towards a first collection, and with a track record of publication in journals and magazines, an opportunity to read their work in public. (they pay too, or they used to before the R-word hit us)

To apply for the series, send six poems and a short literary-biography to Introductions, Poetry Ireland, 2 Proud’s Lane, off St Stephen’s Green, D2 before
Friday, 9 January, 2009.

So if you've a decent, published back catalogue, what have you got to lose? Go for it.

And if you don't think you have a published history, why not start sending out to magazines now? Search my blog for suggested magazines. And maybe you can apply next year.

Thank you so much for this - and for all your info on relevant events, comps, mags, etc. for other 'emerging' writers... I hope you don't mind, but I want to share your blog with all my creative writing students...

Hi Carolyn,

Sure, glad to help. Suggest they leave comments on what works, what doesn't, anything else they'd like to see.
