Strokestown Poetry Festival 2008
A new P-i-R poem will today wing its way to the isle of William Butler Yeats. Emerging from my vacillations this winter morning I will see to it that I am early in the post office queue with my precious entry. The last date for work to arrive at the Co. Roscommon headquarters is 31st January next. So there's a bit of time. But nevertheless it's a good idea to beat the Xmas chaos and any possible strikes by vacillious postal staff. There's a charming website complete with a printable entry form and a map of Strokestown itself to look at as you ponder the poetic possibilities. Googling 'Strokestown Poetry Festival 2008' will quickly get you there.
