The Munster Literature Centre

The Munster Literature Centre has been holding spring literary festivals since 1993, having gone by the names Éigse and Cork Spring Literary Festival in the past. It was renamed The Cork Spring Poetry Festival in 2012, to reflect the focus in poetry programming, which is always popular with Cork audiences. The Gregory O’Donoghue International Poetry Prize for a single poem was introduced in 2010, in honour of a late Irish poet long associated with the Centre. Readers at the Cork Spring Literary Festival have included Ilya Kaminsky, August Kleinzahler, Darcey Steinke, Brian Turner, Dan Rhodes, Jo Shapcott, John Hartley Williams, Yang Lian, Andres Ehin, Mary Morrissey, Patrick Galvin, Alan Titley, Mary Leland, Kerry Hardie, Medbh McGuckian, Mary O'Malley and Conal Creedon among many, many others.
