Live Encounters Poetry Festival 2016


The uniqueness of this 24 x 7 festival is that every visitor can conduct a one on one with a poet by reading the poems published in these four volumes, which have guest editorials by Noel Monahan, John Fitzgerald, Daniel Lawless and Eileen Casey. And for more of the 48 featured poets’ works one can go to any bookshop or website to buy their books. We have added web links in the poets’ profiles, wherever possible, to assist readers.

The Live Encounters International Poetry Competition 2017  will be launched in December 2016. Details to follow.

Keep poetry alive, nourish and rejoice in it, for it is the breath of Life.

Mark Ulyseas, Editor
