The National Library of Ireland presents The Blank Page featuring Niall MacMonagle, Clodagh Beresford Dunne and Martin Dyar.

'If I knew where poems came from, I'd go there'. - Michael Longley

This event explores the genesis, the making and remaking of a poem of theirs with award-winning poets Clodagh Beresford Dunne and Martin Dyar. Where do poems come from? How is a poem shaped and re-shaped? How does a poet choose a particular form, stanza structure, line length? What happens between a blank page and the finished work? Such questions and others will be explored with Clodagh and Martin with particular focus on particular poems. The conversation will be moderated by Niall MacMonagle.
