PAMPHLET LAUNCH & READING - IN SASANA
I'm off to England on Friday for the Derwent Poetry Festival in Matlock Bath where I will receive my Templar Poetry Award on Friday night - my published pamphlet Portrait of the Artist with a Red Car and a handsome cheque.
I will also read on Saturday with fellow-winner Dawn Wood.
I'm so excited to be going away. 'You need to get off the island every so often,' someone said to me recently. It will do me good to get away from my desk, the house and general baby-related chores. I'm looking forward to meeting my fellow winners, Alex McMillen who runs Templar Poetry and anyone else who is there.
Report when I get back, hopefully!
Big thanks to Culture Ireland for the funding which makes it possible for me to go. Go raibh maith agaibh!
