Ways of Writing: essay in Trumpet 4

My essay encompassing a discussion of the cross-stream: ways of writing project within a larger discussion of my curatorial activities and compositional interests appears in the latest issue of Trumpet , Poetry Ireland's quarterly pamphlet of poetry, reviews and essays. Future issues of Trumpet will include articles by poets who participated in cross-stream based on their presentations for the project. My thanks to Poetry Ireland's Paul Lenehan for his interest. Issue 4 of Trumpet also features reviews of new books by Dylan Brennan, Angela Carr and Victoria Kennefick among others, as well as poems by Kim Moore, Ailbhe NĂ­ Ghearbhuigh and more. Trumpet  costs €2.00 per issue and is available individually from bookshops  or directly from Poetry Ireland through subscription .

Caves, Bears & Pages at The Ink Factory

Cave Writings in partnership with The Bohemyth and Belleville Park Pages  are hosting an event they call "possibly the most impressive celebration of contemporary writing in Ireland this year". Taking place at The Ink Factory in Dublin (15 Wellington Quay, D2) on Tuesday 9 June, 'Caves, Bears and Pages' will feature readings from 12 writers selected between the three hosts. I'm very happy to have been invited by The Pages to take part, and I look forward to reading alongside some exciting people like Ronan Murphy and Dimitra Xidous. This is a free event, with a start time of 8.30pm. BYOB.
