World Day of Poetry 2021

Watch Poetry Day Good day Cork
It was a joy to co-create these poetry videos with our friends, Collective Cork
We chose six poems to be narrated by our friends. The poems are by Pauli Murray, Emily Dickinson, Jacob Morris, Laura Grey, Mary Oliver and Cork’s very own Kel Menton.

Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful.

Truth, honesty, empowerment – it’s what I want for myself and my readers.
