Poetry in Motion at the Droichead Arts Centre

On Wednesday 26 January I will be reading as guest poet at the Poetry in Motion monthly series of readings at the Droichead Arts Centre. These sessions start at 7.30pm with short readings from members of the the Saltwater Scribblers writing group (who have now taken over the running of the series). I'm told that guest writer readings can lead to dicussions about the writing craft. Admission is free. Sean-Nos Singing sessions follow the readings - these start at around 9.30pm and are also free of charge. My thanks to the previous organiser of the Poetry in Motion series, Emer Davis, for arranging this reading.

3:AM Magazine's 'Maintenant' Series

For the 43rd edition of 3:AM Magazine's Maintenant series of features on contemporary European poets, I am being interviewd by the series editor, Steven Fowler . As is the usual practice, the interview is accompanied by a number of my poems . Each featured poet is assigned to a country, and as such I was the first to have fallen into the category marked 'Cyprus'. I comment on distinctions on the basis of nationality in the interview . I was delighted to have been approached for this feature. I think the series is a terrific and necessary initiative from 3:AM Magazine, through which I've become aware of the work of some really exciting poets.
