Anthology Editors Speak
Tuesday, 14 February @3pm
There are many pressing issues pertaining to the preparation of anthologies. Frequently poets are not even informed by publishers that their work is included in particular publications. Payment is often not extended. This situation is especially acute in the field of poetry. This panel brings together two renowned poets who are also anthologists (Katie Donovan and Matthew Sweeney) along with Paris-based academic and anthologist Cliodhna Ní Riordan. It will be held on the day before Cork Spring Festival and so allows for participants to attend – we are sure there will be significant interest in this. The panel will address issues around payment, communication and fair treatment. Maureen Kennelly, director of Poetry Ireland will chair the discussion.
