The iYeats Poetry competition was launched by the Hawk's Well Theatre in 2009 to mark the 50th Yeats International Summer School and the 70th anniversary of the death of W. B Yeats. Now in its 7th year running, the Hawk’s Well Theatre is delighted to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Yeats’ birth through encouraging poets around the world.
