The Introductions Series 2010 will take place in early May (date’s TBC) in the Irish Writers' Centre. Please contact Poetry Ireland/Éigse Éireann to confirm acceptance of your Introductions reading.
A free workshop with poet and critic James McAuley is also offered as part of the Introductions series. Previous Introductions readers have found this workshop invaluable in terms of preparing both the poems and the poet for a public reading. The workshop with Jim will run on the following date at the following venue:
When: Saturday 10th April 2010 from 11am – 4pm
Where: The Damer Hall, 112 St Stephens Green, Dublin 2
Once again, if it isn’t possible for you to attend the workshop, please let us know as soon as possible.
Congratulations on your selection for the Poetry Ireland Introductions Series 2010, and do encourage family, friends and colleagues to turn up on the night to offer their support.

"And you may ask yourself, My God! What have I done?"
