TWO READINGS & A RESIDENCY
I am doing two readings this month. A bilingual poetry reading for Seachtain na Gaeilge (Coicíos na Gaeilge?!):
Thursday, 12th March at 7pm in Ballaghadereeen Library, County Roscommon.
Déardaoin, 12 Márta,7in - An Leabharlann, Bealach an Doirín, Co Ros Comáin
The other is a short fiction/poetry reading at:
Nighthawks, The Cobalt Café, North Great George’s St, Dublin, on Saturday the 28th March. Time 8pm
But, I’m told by Colm Keegan of Nighthawks ,that punters must come early. They ALWAYS have to turn people away. Now that’s a good sign, isn’t it? There will be music and comedy on the night too.
I’m also delighted to be Writer-in-Residence at the Cúirt Intl Festival of Literature this year. The programme (and a very exciting one it is too) will be launched on Wednesday the 18th of March at 6pm in Bar 8, on the docks, in Galway city.
I have various duties as Writer-in-Res which include judging a lit comp, giving a short fiction workshop, and doing a writing workshop with some of the men in Castlerea Prison. More anon!
