The Unfinished Book of Poetry 2015

The Unfinished Book of Poetry 2015


The Unfinished Book of Poetry project had its genesis in Cork’s year as European Capital of Culture and has subsequently taken on a life of its own. Since 2005, thirty established writers have provided workshops for Transition Year students from over twenty Cork schools, in a project which as of 2020 has seen over 600 young writers find their way into print.

Each year five Cork City libraries host student writers from five local schools, who then undergo workshops led by locally based, established writers over nine sessions. 

This year [2015] the participating poets and schools were, I Leabharlann na Linne Duibhe, d’oibrigh Simon Ó Faoláin le daltaí as Gaelcholáiste Mhuire, Sarah Hayden with students from Ashton School in the City Library, Gabriel Fitzmaurice and young students from Bishopstown Community School, and Alannah Hopkin’s group from Presentation Girls Secondary met in the Tory Top Library.
