We need your poems for Poets’ Trees 2023!

Money doesn’t grow on trees – that’s something we all know
But Kanturk trees are soon to host a special summer show
The park that is O’Brien street, will soon be magically transformed
Where trees become our ‘Poets’–Trees’, with poetry adorned
So, if YOU enjoy writing, love your poems, words and art
Please send us your creations – we’d love many to take part!

by Carol Brewer


Poets’ Trees was a so successful last year that we have decided to repeat it for 2023.

Kanturk Arts Festival is once again looking for your poems for its summer project Poets’ Trees 2023.

The poems will be hung on the magnificent trees in O’Brien Street Park for the months of July and August.

Don’t want your name to appear – no bother, just mention that to us in your email.

You can submit up to four poems.

So c’mon, get cracking!!!

Only two conditions:
