Anthology Title Prize Winner

The County Arts Office world like to thank the participants in this years Poetry and Prose Mentoring Programme for their enthusiastic and imaginative response to our call for possible titles for our anthology of the work of the participants in this year’s mentoring course.

We had almost one hundred percent response from all of the course participants and the adjudicator had a serious task in selecting just one winner.  In the end one of the suggestions of poet Breda Sullivan, one of Longford and Westmeath’s most accomplished poets, was chosen as the winner.

The title proposal was “Ring Around the Moon” was chosen ‘for its lyrical quality, for the way it reflects the soaring imaginative quality of much of the work contained in the anthology and for the visual possibilities that it presents to the visual artists who will compete for the design cover’

The winner receives a cheque for €50.00 and a naming credit in the anthology.

The anthology: “Ring Around the Moon” will be launched at 8.00pm on National Poetry Day, Thursday 2nd October in the Canal Studio, Backstage Theatre, Longford
