Date: Wednesday 4 May 2022

Cork City Libraries and Ó Bhéal are delighted to announce the 18th edition of The Unfinished Book of Poetry (2022) features new poetry from transition-year writers representing five Cork schools. This edition will be launched at Cork City Library, Grand Parade, at 12pm, Wednesday 4th May 2022. All are welcome to attend and listen to these young writers read from their work.

Each year these student writers undergo a series of workshops led by established poets, over nine sessions. The workshops take place between November and March and the book is then launched by the Lord Mayor of Cork each year.

This year’s schools include Bishopstown Community School, Gaelcholáiste Mhuire, A.G., Mayfield Community School, St Aloysius School and Coláiste Chríost Rí.

Date: Wednesday 4 May 2022

Since 2005 over thirty writers have provided workshops for Transition Year students from over twenty Cork schools, with almost 700 young writers find their way into print. Ó Bhéal has been curating the project since 2012. To find out more about this project, see www.obheal.ie/blog/the-unfinished-book-of-poetry/
