Poetry Ireland: Introductions Series

Wednesday, 28 Oct
We are inviting donations for this event.

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 come through the series including Enda Wyley, Kerry Hardie, John McAuliffe, Doireann Ní Ghríofa, Pat Boran, Caoilinn Hughes, Stephen Sexton and Kerrie O’Brien. Poetry Ireland is teaming up once again with ILFDublin to present a digital showcase of the promising new voices of the Introductions Series 2020, featuring: Lani O’Hanlon, Nidhi Zak / Aria Eipe, Mark Ward, Lianne O’Hara, Jake Hawkey, Tory Campbell, Mícheál McCann, Charis McRoberts, Eoin Hegarty, Eva Griffin, Nancy Graham, Kate Quigley, and Sinéad Nolan.

The showcase will be accompanied by an ebook of the poets’ work, available as a free download during the festival.

The Gutter Bookshop is sad they can’t be at the festival in person this year but you can browse (and purchase!) books by the featured authors at the special ILFDublin festival shop - CLICK HERE. And remember that there’s no postage to pay in Ireland if you spend over €30 or if you choose to collect your books from either of our bookshops. Just choose the ‘Free Shipping’ or ‘Click & Collect’ options at checkout!
