Anthology Naming Competition

The culmination of the County Arts Office Writers Mentoring Programme carried out in the Spring of this year under the excellent stewardship of Noel and Alan, will be the launch of a collection of poetry and prose work submitted by many of you.

In a slight departure from normal procedure we have decided to ask the programme participants to decide the title of the collection and to add a little incentive, we will offer €50.00 prize and a naming credit for the winning submission.

Once we have decided upon the title of the collection we will ask artists living in or originally from Longford to design the cover.

The collection will be launched in The Canal Studio, Backstage Theatre, Longford at 7.30pm on National Poetry Day, October 2nd.

Rules of Entry:

1. All submissions must be by e-mail to and must be marked; Collection Title 

2. Each writer should submit no more than three suggested titles.

3. A suggested title cannot be more than six words.

4. All submissions should be received by the Arts Office by e-mail no later that 5.00pm  on Monday 28th July . 

We look forward to your proposals.
