Name: Dedalus Press Mentorship Programme – Spring 2021

Entry Fee: There’s no entry fee, although we ask that applicants purchase one Dedalus title from our website and include the order number in their application. There’s also a completely cost-free option to ensure accessibility.
Mentorship programme description: Are you an ‘emerging’ poet? Maybe you’ve published some individual poems here and there but have yet to publish a full-length collection? Dedalus Press is pleased to announce a call for applications for the Dedalus Press Mentorship Programme Spring 2021. We are on the lookout for up to 5 emerging poets for whom we will arrange free online mentoring sessions to be conducted by a panel of established poets. This is an excellent opportunity for ‘new’ poets to engage in a meaningful way with a more experienced figure, and to get the kind of close-up attention for their work that is not always available in a larger workshop setting. Application is open to Irish-born poets (resident anywhere) and to poets currently resident in Ireland, south or north. Applicants must be over 18 years, but applications are warmly encouraged from all age groups. We highly encourage submissions from underrepresented voices. All mentoring/tutoring fees will be paid for by us. Prospective poets are asked to submit up to 10 pages of poems (published or unpublished) for consideration.
