We are the Poets



As Laureate na nÓg, Sarah Crossan has created We Are The Poets, a two-year project inspiring young people to express themselves through poetry and verse.

Since January, Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture, Poetry Ireland, Children’s Books Ireland and Galway and Roscommon ETB have brought poets working with the Writers in Schools Scheme to post-primary schools across Galway. The poets work alongside the young people to inspire and help them create poems on the Galway 2020 themes of landscape, language and migration.

Yesterday, we had the pleasure of hearing some of those poems as we welcomed Sarah Crossan to Galway for a very special encounter with the participants and poets. The audience were treated to a talk and Q&A with Sarah, after which, two students from each participating school read their poems.
