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 the 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.
This mentorship is made possible through funding by Words Ireland.
