Revival - a journal of contemporary poetry.

The White House Poets have for the past five years held their White House Poetry Revival readings in the White House pub in Limerick City, Ireland. The readings have been very successful with a mix of local, national and international poets reading their work to an always appreciative audience. Over a year ago Microphone On - an anthology of poetry read at the White House was published. Now the White House Poets bring you 'Revival' a journal of contemporary poetry, in chapbook format, to be published four times per year.
