2016 Poetry Ireland and Tyrone Guthrie Centre Bursary



I’m absolutely delighted to have been awarded a Poet-in-Residence Bursary by Poetry Ireland and the Tyrone Guthrie Centre:

Poetry Ireland is pleased to announce the winners for the Poet-in-Residence Bursary offered by Poetry Ireland and the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, kindly supported by McCarthy Insurance Group. The bursary caters for mid-career poets who need time away from other demands to focus on writing. In recognition of the exceptional quality of applications received, three poets have been awarded a one-week bursary each, to take place in spring 2016:

My sincere and heartfelt thanks to all concerned. And congratulations to fellow winners Maria McManus and Michael O’Loughlin.
