The Poetry Ireland Introductions Series aims to showcase emerging talent by offering a paid, public reading to poets working towards a first collection, and with a track record of publication in journals and magazines.

I did this about a thousand years ago. It's good. You get to do a workshop with a big poet. A nice way to meet your contemporaries too.

To apply for the Introductions series in Spring 2013, send no more than ten pages of poems and a short biographical note emphasising publication credits to: Introductions, Poetry Ireland, 32 Kildare St, D2

The closing date for receipt of entries is Monday 7 January 2013.

This year Doghouse Books in Co. Kerry has agreed to read (without commitment from publisher or poet) the shortlisted Introductions readers, with a view to publishing one full collection within the following year.
