Geopark Poetry Map Submission Invited


We know you love the land, particularly the region of Marble Arch Caves UNESCO Global Geopark and the arts.
Currently, we are seeking contributions on a geoheritage theme to create a Geopark Poetry Map, curated by Bee Smith. We have commissioned five poets to create new work and I am happy that we announced them yesterday on Poetry Day Ireland. (
We are looking to map the Geopark poem by poem and for that we need you and your poetry writing friends to contact me for submission guidelines at
Poems need to have a strong geoheritage theme and be site specific. The Geopark staff have created a wonderful document with plenty of research on twenty-one sites at your fingertips. That can be forwarded to you when you email
The deadline for submissions is 31st May 2021.
The Geopark Poetry Map is a project funded by Geological Survey Ireland's Geoheritage Fund and has support from Cavan Arts Office. The digital poetry map will go live in October 2021.
