Kilkenny County Council's Arts Office is delighted to announce the launch of the second edition of Rhyme Rag, a poetry publication featuring the work of young Kilkenny writers. Close to 250 poems by 218 writers were submitted for inclusion in edition 2 of the Rhyme Rag making the editors decision a good read but a difficult choice. 31 poems from young people aged between 12 and 21 years who have little or no previous writing experience were selected in this year's publication.
As the numbers were so great, this years Rhyme Rag will take the form of a comic book, containing a poem per page. The illustration of the comic will be undertaken by artist Ale Mercado. Ale's original illustrations, which will be based on each poem, will also be printed up in large format for an exhibition at No. 72, John Street and there will also be a limited edition of the prints available.
The launch of the Rhyme Rag and the exhibition will take place at No. 72, John Street on Friday 10th November 2006 at 5pm. The Rhyme Rag exhibition will run from November 10th until December 8th.
