“a nice way to start the day!”

Back by popular demand, this poetry initiative from Waterford Healing Arts has been curated this this year by the wonderful Anne Tannam, who has chosen an inspiring selection of poems to give us a daily lift.  A new poem will be shared each day with the University Hospital Waterford (UHW) community via patient meal trays and staff emails, and the wider Well Festival audience through Waterford Libraries, Garter Lane Arts Centre and online.

From Drimnagh in Dublin, poet Anne Tannam has written three poetry collections, the latest of which is Twenty-six Letters of a New Alphabet (Salmon Poetry 2021).  Her fourth collection, dismantle, will be published this spring.  Anne is currently Poet in Residence with Poetry Ireland.
