About the event
Join us on Zoom this Poetry Day Ireland 2022 for a poetry reading by Emily Cullen followed by Open Mic! For this special session, we invite you to read open mic poems that address Poetry Ireland's Poetry Day theme "Written in the Stars": we want your poems of prophesy and prediction. Or, in contrast, your poems questioning the idea that we can ever know what’s coming down the line.
7:45pm - Sign up for Open Mic on Zoom chat
8:00pm - Emily Cullen reading
8:15pm - Open Mic begins
9:10pm - Announcements and Farewells
