Collaboration between the School of English and the Munster Literature Centre

A team made up of Prof Graham Allen of the School of English and Patrick Cotter of the Muster Literature Centre have received an award through the DUETs programme for a project entitled New Eyes on the Great Book

The project aims to create connections between the poets represented in the Great Book of Ireland and a younger generation of poets.

The project will include the production of a limited edition hard back book including the new poems to be published by the Munster Literature Centre and presented in July during the series of events featuring the Great Book at the Glucksman Gallery and made available to the general public.
