Future Perfect Anthology

“[T]he voices of a wide range of talented writers. The voices contained within these pages are distinct and individual, but the writing is unfailingly striking and beautiful” – Michael D. Higgins, President of Ireland.

“[P]oetry is transformative. It has the power to change lives.” – Sarah Crossan. Laureate na nÓg (2018-2020)

The Trócaire/Poetry Ireland collection of poems from their annual competition uses poetry to raise awareness about the global justice issues in contemporary times. This anthology includes poems from prize winners or runners up over eight years, including poets ranging from primary and post-primary schools alongside adult poets, some of who are established, recognisable names.
