An invitation for inclusion in Cork Words Anthology 2nd Edition
As part of a project supported by Cork City Council and Creative Ireland, Cork City Libraries are seeking submissions of existing work from writers living in or from Cork and/or writing inspired by Cork city.
Pieces will be included in the second anthology of CorkWords which will be published in November this year. The anthology will be distributed by representatives of the city on international visits, and will also be given to Cork’s sister cities: Shanghai, San Francisco, Rennes, Köln. The book will also be for sale in Waterstones as well as other locations citywide.
The first anthology published last year was a wonderful success. It was launched by the Lord Mayor, Cllr Joe Kavanagh in Triskel on September 24, 2020. Installations of selected works from CorkWords were located across the city as a literary trail for Culture Night 2020 and the anthology got special recommendation from Tania Banotti, Director of Creative Ireland. With the publication of the second anthology of CorkWords in 2021, we look forward to more in person events as restrictions will hopefully continue to be lifted as we progress through the year.
You are invited to submit:
a) A maximum of three poems
b) Prose no longer than 2000 words. Due to space restriction shorter pieces are encouraged and standalone extracts are also invited.
Email your submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday 19 June, 2021.
A small fee will be paid to all selected contributors.
