Poetry Ireland is Looking for Poets for their diversity & inclusion advisory council


Poetry Ireland is working to increase the diversity of voices in its programmes and publications. We want to hear from poets belonging to underrepresented or misrepresented groups who would be interested in taking part in an advisory group. This group will meet to discuss essential changes that must be made within the literature and performance sector. Our aim with this project is to ensure all the diverse voices that contribute to contemporary Ireland are amplified.

Diverse experiences include, but are not limited to: gender diversity, people of colour, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities.

The first meeting will take place on 11 September and will include participation by our current Poetry Ireland Review editor Eavan Boland and will be facilitated by Olwen Dawe. Reimbursement can be arranged for travel fare to the meeting.

Please send a brief expression of interest to Elizabeth at info@poetryireland.ie by Wednesday 6 September.
