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.
Line-up here.

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!

Good luck with all those WRW, that Nighthawks malarky is supposed to be rapid, i'd love to go, pity it's beyond my curfew.

Hi TFE, Thank you! I suppose once the drawbridge goes up and the portcullis comes down, that's you for the night.

Congrats on the Cuirt Residency - what was it the Irish Times said about you again... 'one to watch?' ;)

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

Ah, thanks, B. I was thrilled to be asked. The line-up hasn't been announced yet but I was told some of the writers attending (on the QT) and it will be a great Cúirt.
Tell you when I see you!

Nice one(s), Nuala. Congrats.

Saw Nighthawks announced (in Stinging Fly cafe) for Sat. 28th and hoped to go but if it's the Sunday, won't be able to make it...sounds like a class night out.

Hi Liz
Thanks for that heads up. I'd better check the date as I was told the 29th as the date, but no day was mentioned, so I figured it was the Sunday which did sound a little odd. Will check now!
Cheers!
Nuala
