Poets sought for Poetry Ireland’s new Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Council

Posted: 24 August, 2017

Poetry Ireland is working to increase the diversity of voices in its programmes and publications. They 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. Their 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 11th September and will include participation by current Poetry Ireland Review editor Eavan Boland and will be facilitated by Olwen Dawe. Reimbursement can be arranged for travel fare to the meeting.

For more information, see Poetry Ireland’s website.

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