Submissons deadline: 30th April 2019
Poula Poetry is a Blessington-based group of local poets who have been meeting since 2017 to share our love of poetry with each other and with the wider community. We presented some of our poems last year in events in Blessington Library and also on our well-received “Poetry Bus” Tour of West Wicklow which brought participants to various locations where we all enjoyed music and poetry in settings such as the Blessington Lakes, King’s River and Russborough House.
We are preparing for publication what we believe will be the first ever anthology of poems from West Wicklow. We are putting out an open invitation for poems written by people living in, or poets elsewhere inspired by, the West Wicklow area.
We are interested in receiving poems on themes such as:
- people in our community,
- interesting places in the area,
- experiences of life in West Wicklow.
Any poet whose work is included will receive a copy of the book as well an invitation to read their poem at the launch of the book.
The deadline for receipt of submissions is 30 April 2019.
Submissions, with poet’s name, name of poems and contact details, should be sent to Poula Poetry Anthology at Blessington Library, Co Wicklow.
We look forward to receiving your poems. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
