Opportunity for Members for Poetry Publication

Aug 10, 2018

Opportunity for Members for Poetry Publication, October, November, December


As part of our new membership package, members of the Society are welcome to submit their own poems and we are delighted that your work will be assessed by our poet in residence Alice Lyons.

Our aim is to publish three poems by three individual members on our website; one in October, one in November and one in December - 2018.

We will host an event at the Yeats Building to announce the three chosen poems.


Please email your poems to us at info@yeatssociety.com

Please put MEMBERS POETRY - in the subject box

You can mail up to a maximum of three poems - they should all be together in one word document, attached to the email. The word document should not bear your name. Alice will assess the work anonymously.

No one poem should exceed 45 lines.

If you prefer, please drop in or post the poems to us at Yeats Building, Hyde Bridge, Sligo, F91 DVY4. If you are sending by post, please make sure that the poems do not bear your name, but that you send an accompanying note with your name, address and telephone number and titles of the poems.

The closing date for receipt of your work is September 7 2018 at 5pm.

Members must be up to date with their payments to avail of this opportunity, which is free.

Alice Lyons, will be taking up the 'in-residence' part of her role during the Autumn months. On Fridays, Alice will be writing in the library at the Yeats Building, and she will welcome visits from members who want to drop in for a chat.

We look forward to hearing from you

Kind regards

Susan O'Keeffe
