The  Cork International Poetry Festival is a fantastic poetry festival we should all be proud of. I'm gutted that I'm going to have to miss it this year but if you have a chance, get yourself to Cork for at least part of 10th to 13th February and gorge yourself on all things poetry from soup to amuse bouche through meat and two veg to exotic fruits.

And if you book before 7th Feb online here it's only €70 for the whole lot. Bargain!
So who could you see?
  • the Itinerant Poetry Librarian,
  • various showcases with a mix of readers
  • Paul Casey & Doireann Ní Ghríofa (recommended)
  • Thomas Lynch & Aidan Murphy
  • Joseph Horgan & Afric McGlinchey
  • Sarah Hayden & Rachel Warriner
  • Ailbhe Darcy & Caitríona O'Reilly
  • Gerry Murphy & Tom Pickard
  • David O'Meara & Matthew Sweeney
  • John Fitzgerald & John Mee
  • Michael Coady & John McAuliffe
  • Tomica Bajsić & Gerard Smyth
  • Vona Groarke & Paisley Rekdal
  • Kyle Dargan & Deryn Rees-Jones
  • Moya Cannon & Bronwyn Lea (recommended)
and many more. Info and all that here
There are also a few places still available on the week long workshop, if you are able to make that kind of time commitment.
