Poetry Ireland link poets, writers, and storytellers with young people in a number of educational settings to inspire a lifelong emotional connection with literature. Different strands include Writers in Schools, Writers in Residence (partnered with Wrapparound, Foras na Gaeilge, WorldWise Global Schools, the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade), and various projects including Poetry Aloud (in partnership with the National Library of Ireland), and the Trócaire Poetry Competition.
Through its work across the arts and education Poetry Ireland aims to act as an exemplar for best practice within the arts-in-education sector with both the standard of the education services it provides and its treatment of the writers who provide the service.
