For over a decade, the Annual Literary Awards and Creative Writing Showcase has been a highlight in the Carlow College/St Patrick’s calendar. This year is no exception, and we are honoured to have distinguished Belfast poet Michael Longley present our literary awards.

Bringing together the entire College community – first year to fourth year, humanities to social care students – the literary awards and creative writing showcase recognises and celebrates the very best of Carlow College, St. Patrick’s literary talent in poetry and prose over the last year in a spirit of camaraderie and friendly competition.

The night will open with a welcome from Dr Derek Coyle, followed by a creative writing showcase before Michael Longley presents the awards and winners read their work. Michael Longley will then read from his most recent publication ’The Candlelight Master’ (Cape Poetry, 2020), followed by a Q&A session.

This is a wonderful opportunity to hear reminiscences, anecdotes, celebrations of place names, occasional verses and the odd standalone quatrain from Michael Longley himself such as: “I am the candlelight master / Striking a match in the shadows. / A smoky wick, then radiance. / I am the candlelight master”.

John Banville, Irish Times *Books of the Year* says ‘Michael Longley's luminous ‘The Candlelight Master’...demonstrate[s] how much poetry matters even in the most terrible of times.’
We very much look forward to an enjoyable evening of creative writing and invite you to join this celebration by booking through Eventbrite at:
