Drawing inspiration from the Poetry Wall at UCD Library, the Virtual Poetry Wall includes commemorative poems generated in creative writing workshops; poems submitted by the public; commissioned poems; and poems by well-known authors that are now out of copyright. A physical archive of these poems is held in UCD Special Collections. This project has now ended and, therefore, we are longer accepting submissions. We are very grateful to everyone who contributed to the commemorative archive.
