There Will Be Time Poetry Day 2020 Facebook Livestream
April 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
All are very welcome as we join this day of celebration acknowledging the importance of poetry in our lives, in the digital realm, in print and in private.
During our Poetry Day Ireland livestream April 30th at 7pm we will reveal the poet-in-residence for the year 2020.
The Yeats Society is very excited to welcome our new poet-in-residence a poet who has made waves with their work. They will lay out a little of what they plan to do during the residency and then read from their work.
The poet-in-residence will then introduce the Poetry Day Ireland Guest of honour Elaine Feeney. Poet Elaine Feeney lives in Co. Galway and has three published collections. Her first novel As You Were, will be published in August this year.
We will be saying goodbye to our lovely poet-in-residence Alice Lyons, who has just published her first novel, Oona, with Lilliput Press.
We thank Alice for her contribution to the Yeats Society and we look forward to following her future endeavours.
