Established in 1989 by poet Theo Dorgan, Poetry Ireland’s Introductions Series offers exciting opportunities for talented, emerging poets to showcase their work.
Many acclaimed poets have taken part in this programme including Stephen Sexton, Doireann Ní Ghríofa, Pat Boran, Victoria Kennefick, John McAuliffe, Ciara Ní E, and Nidhi Zak / Aria Eipe.
Stepping to the stage with work that is playful and current, vulnerable and accomplished, the ten poets performing in both English and Irish over these two nights represent the electrifying future of Irish poetry.
These readings will be accompanied by a free downloadable eBook of the poets’ work entitled ‘This Is What You Mean To Me’.
