In anticipation of the Funeral Services Northern Ireland National Poetry Competition finale in the Long Gallery at Parliament Buildings, Stormont on 20 November 2013, we shall be carrying out regional recital events across Northern Ireland in association with various regional poetry groups and arts organisations.
We invite all lovers of words to come and join us at our poetry readings, many of which feature special appearances from last year’s competition winners. This will be a fantastic opportunity to share your work, gain inspiration, confidence and pick up some tips and tricks along the way.
