Poetry Ireland Poet In Residence Anne Tannam


September 2023

This week was my first time experiencing a student-filled campus since I began my residency in May, and
I was amazed at the tremendous energy and excitement there is about the place. Oh, to bottle that buzz! I
want to say it reminds me of my college days, but I went to Mater Dei Institute of Education in the 1980s,
which officially had the world’s smallest campus (OK, I may have made that fact up), where there was
more of a quiet fizz about the place. So, what’s happening poetry-wise this semester?
