News: New Irish Children's Laureate


Children's Books Ireland (CBI) is delighted to welcome Sarah Crossan as Ireland’s fifth Laureate na nÓg, holding the title from 2018 until 2020. 

Her theme as Laureate will be #WeAreThePoets, a two-year project inspiring young people to express themselves through poetry and verse. Sarah has a particular interest in working with marginalised communities. 

Under the #WeAreThePoets banner she will collaborate with a team of writers to deliver workshops, as well as a national event showcasing the young voices that have participated in her Laureate project.

Sarah, an award winning YA author, follows the admirable footsteps of PJ Lynch who held the title from 2016 - 2018 delivering his theme entitled, The Big Picture.
