Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford is currently celebrating the 1500th anniversary of its foundation in 510AD. As part of the anniversary celebrations, local newspaper the Enniscorthy Echo has been featuring a weekly poetry column, entitled Scalderverse. (Natives of Enniscorthy town are traditionally known as ‘Scalders’)
This weekly column features a poem by a local writer - or which references some aspect of the town itself - in each issue of the Echo from mid-June to end of November 2010.
Unpublished poems reflecting contemporary life in Enniscorthy are particularly welcome.
Poets from further afield are also welcome to submit poems which specifically reference some aspect of Enniscorthy or its surroundings.
Scalderverse is curated - and occasionally illustrated - by Padhraig Nolan.
NOTE : There is a production limitation of 40 lines of verse, including stanza breaks, for each poem. A maximum of three poems, with a short biographical note, should be emailed for consideration to scalderverse[at_symbol]gmail.com.
