This book celebrates a selection of poetry and prose produced by the young writers who participated in the Farmgate Teen Writing Project**.

The teen writing project was born in the Farmgate Café in Cork - a place already associated with poetry: The Poetry Wall was installed in the café in 2004. Since then the wall of poems, a unique collection of poems comprising Cork, Irish and international poets, has aroused interest not only in the ever expanding collection of poems, but it has also worked in a visible and tangible way to create an interesting connection between the written works and all the other creative components in the café; paintings, sculpture, food, and the Market below (see more info about the Wall at In these surroundings the teen writing project originated.

In 2011 we approached Liam Ronayne at Cork City Libraries with the idea of a teen poetry and prose project and from there it became a reality and a great success. The hard work of the Workshop mentors Eileen Sheehan, Kevin Doyle and John W. Sexton and the staff and students of three schools – Ballyphehane Presentation Secondary School, Mayfield Community School and Terence McSwiney Community College, made it a reality. A Taste of Poetry & Prose is the result. Enjoy!

**This is a not-for-profit writing project - funded by Farmgate Cafe. The book is sold at the cost of production by Blurb.
