INTO Poetry Competition

If you are a member of INTO -Irish National Teachers' Organisation  - you can enter this.

Poetry Competition in Memory of Séamus Heaney

The INTO is proud of its tradition in supporting the Arts. We were privileged to share the company of one of our most eminent poets Séamus Heaney at the Consultative Conference on Education in Athlone in 2011.

In honour of his memory the INTO, in collaboration with Poetry Ireland, is launching a poetry competition for members. All members, North and South, are eligible to submit a poem. Entries are limited to one poem per member, which can be in Irish or in English.

Closing date is 31 March 2014.

The winner will be announced at Congress 2014. The INTO will publish the winning poem in InTouch.

All entries must be accompanied with an entry form and posted to Poetry Competition, Áras Vere Foster, 35 Parnell Square, Dublin 1.

The INTO and Poetry Ireland will appoint an adjudicator to judge all applications. There will be a prize of €300 for the best poem in English and the best poem in Irish, in addition to an option of spending some time in the Tyrone Guthrie centre in Annaghmakerrig.
