The launch of Phoenix Ink 3 is on tomorrow night in Blanchardstown Library from 7pm. Everybody is welcome.
This is the fourth year on the trot that the Phoenix Writers Group based in Dublin 15 has produced an anthology. By all accounts, things did not go easily on the editing front but at least its out and out there to showcase some of the great literary talent in the locality.
I have three poems in it - I miss that old tree (humorous) the Pyracantha (a serious poem) and When I am dead (a rather morbid terzanelle)
Apparently a somewhat unseemly row over the eligibility of late entries caused people to withdraw their work and others to withdraw from the editing, which was something of a shame. The anthology is the poorer for their absence, that's for sure. But its still a good read and provides aspiring writers in Dublin 15 with a chance to see their name in print.
