Competition: iYeats International Poetry 2019
Competition deadline: 3rd July
The iYeats International Poetry Competition 2019 is now open for entries! Hosted by Hawk’s Well Theatre since 2009, the annual event has won a prestigious reputation for the calibre of both entrants, and judges. The competition is open to all those who are sixteen years of age and upwards, with an award of €500 for the winner of the General Category, and €300 is awarded to the winner of the Emerging Category for those aged between 16-25 years of age. Launched a decade ago, the poetry competition was initiated by the Hawk’s Well Theatre to mark the 50th Yeats International Summer School, and the 70th anniversary of the death of W. B Yeats.
Following in the tradition of the previous years’ lauded panels, the judges for this year’s iYeats Poetry Competition are highly respected poet John F. Deane, and spoken word artist Rafeef Ziadah.
