- Poetry Prizes
A preview of the 2015 Cork Spring Poetry Festival programme is here! Jo Shapcott, Lavinia Greenlaw, Don Share, David Wheatley, Grace Wells, Martina Evans, Dave Lordan and many more will be reading. Additionally, we'll have events focussing on Irish poetry publications including the Poetry Bus, the Penny Dreadful and Southword Journal. This year will also feature multiple book launches, including the 'Fool for Poetry' chapbook competition winners Victoria Kennefick and Virgina Astley. We'll be finalising the lineup, with tickets going on sale in the new year. Keep an eye on our writing workshops page for opportunities to focus on your own poetry with the guidance of prizewinning published writers.
