Bealtaine Poetry Line is a collaboration between Age & Opportunity and Poetry Ireland. The Poetry Line was developed by Poetry Ireland. Individuals are invited to sign up for free to receive a personal phone call from an award-winning poet who will read them 2-3 poems as part of Bealtaine Festival taking place from 15 – 26 May.
Participating poets include Thomas McCarthy, Jane Clarke, Mícheál McCann, Rachael Hegarty, and Molly Twomey.
To sign up, please call Poetry Ireland’s dedicated Poetry Line at 01 443 4277. One of our team will take your name, phone number, preferred time slot, and any particular poem requests (if you have one). The Poetry Line will be open for sign-ups for one week starting on Monday 24 April from 10AM – 5PM daily. Sign-ups will close on Friday 28 April.
The Poetry Line phone calls will then take place during Bealtaine Festival between 15 and 26 May. Those who have signed up for a call will receive a call confirming their time slot and poet in advance.
