Ireland Chair of Poetry opens call for 2023 Travel Award

The Ireland Chair of Poetry is delighted to open the call for submissions to the 2023 Ireland Chair of Poetry Travel Award.

The Travel Award was established in order to assist poets in their creative development and specifically to help realise a project requiring travel within or outside Ireland and offers an award of £2,000 in order to do this.

The Trust hopes that this award will offer a poet an opportunity to step outside his or her everyday space and work on a project that will benefit their professional development.
