Poetry Mentorship with Matthew Sweeney

Matthew Sweeney

Applications are invited from Munster-resident poets (with at least one collection published and no more than two) who would like to be mentored by Matthew Sweeney while working towards their next collection. The successful candidate will meet Matthew for six sessions. The first five two-hour sessions will be devoted to assessing batches of poems building towards your next book. The sixth session will be devoted to the overall shape of your manuscript. Mentoring sessions can take place at the Munster Literature Centre or at a location mutually agreeable to the Mentor & Mentee.  Submit 10 poems from your manuscript in progress, a literary cv and a note outlining how you believe you can benefit from this opportunity.

Deadline 31 May 2017.
