Poetry Broadsheet is an annual cultural publication of Kilkenny Arts Office, launched at Kilkenny Arts Festival, that gives writers a platform to showcase their work. The publication is printed in broadsheet format and available to Kilkenny communities free of charge from all Kilkenny Libraries. After an open call, fourteen poems were selected for publication by 2022 Editor Elaine Feeney. The publication was designed in response to the editors concept of "poetry as hope" using vibrant, hand-rendered illustration with delicate line drawings interspersed throughout the text, to help engage the reader as they explore the publication and poetry.
