About Pushkin

For the past 30 years the Pushkin Trust has been encouraging children and teachers in schools all over Ireland to find their ‘voice’ and discover their imagination, inspiration and integration.

“I was writing and reading all the time as a child, but for someone to listen was the most important part. I was lucky enough to have been involved with the first Pushkin Prize when I was 11, and I was really inspired as a child by the idea that writing was something that I could do with my life.”
