Introductions & Versify
Twelve poets were selected
to participate in the 2019
Introductions series, out of
more than 200 applicants.
The chosen emerging poets were:
Audrey Molloy, Jim McElroy, Joe
Carrick-Varty, Angela Finn, Frank
Farrelly, Emily S. Cooper, Ruth
Quinlan, Paul McCarrick, Andrew
Rahal, Mairéad Donnellan, Lorraine
McArdle, and Anne Walsh Donnelly.
The group participated in craft of
poetry, performance skills, and
marketing and promotion workshops,
before going on to read their work at
Poetry Ireland as part of ILFDublin.
During summer 2019, we launched
the search for poets to take part in
Versify, a performance-based parallel
to the Introductions series.
Versify was also Poetry Ireland’s
first partnership with Dublin Fringe
The six Versify poets, chosen by
British-Ghanaian writer Bridget
Minamore, took part in a week of
intensive mentoring by industry
professionals which culminated in a
performance as part of Dublin Fringe
Festival. The 2019 Versify poets were
Samuel Yakura, James Crickard,
Trudie Gorman, Beau Williams,
Christie Kandiwa and Philip Edgar.
