- Why Poetry?
- Competitions 2019
Louise G Cole’s pamphlet ‘Soft Touch’ was published in February 2019 after she was chosen as one of Carol Ann Duffy’s UK Laureate’s Choice poets. Other endorsements for ‘Soft Touch’ have come from Jane Clarke, Dermot Bolger and Rita Ann Higgins.
Louise won the 2018 Hennessy Award for Emerging Poetry, and Strokestown Poetry Festival’s Roscommon Poets’ Prize in 2017.
Based in County Roscommon, she blogs at https://louisegcolewriter.wordpress.com where she explains how the ’G’ in her moniker is necessary to avoid unnecessary confusion with an underwear model.
