Youghal 4 All would like to welcome any emerging or established poets the town has to offer; young or old, merry and bold; in plucking on their heartstrings to let the music be told. The book: ‘Painters and Poets’ will be a celebration of local culture through poetry and art. The idea: Poets will submit their finest piece of poetry anonymously and an artist will depict their interpretation.
One page will have a poem – fruitful or rueful – the opposite page will be the artist’s impression; and so on for the remainder of the book. The artists will not know who wrote the piece that they are to interpret. An element of the unknown with each painting and poem will add to a great day.
The purpose of the book is to raise well needed awareness and monies for mental health Ireland. We aim to further aid in lifting the stigma which cruelly hinders our society.
The unveiling of ‘Painters and Poets’ will be part of the Moby Dick Festival, which takes place on the 31st of May to June 2nd 2013.
A meeting of minds will be celebrated through local culture and so we look forward to seeing you all there.
You can submit your writings to firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can just slip it into Padraig Hyde &Sons (next to Cree’s Card shop) with ‘A Call to Poets’ wrote on the envelope. March 20th will be the closing date for entries.
