"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

SEXTET – A Revival Poetry Anthology

Edited by Edward O’Dwyer
The Loft Venue @ The Locke Bar, Georges Quay, Limerick Tues 14th Dec 8.00pm
The anthology will be launched by Noel King of Doghouse Books

Six new poets. Six very different voices. Each one with a different sense of poetry, place and language. This exciting volume brings together the poetry of Bridget Wallace, Joe Healy, Louis Mulcahy,Evelyn Casey, Sheila Fitzpatrick O’Donnell and John Pinschmidt – poets from diverse backgrounds but all with connections to Limerick city or county. It’s fresh, exciting, diverse and powerful.

Revival Press Managing Editor Dominic Taylor said: “We are delighted to publish Sextet and bring together in one volume the poetry of six poets who have begun to establish themselves as poets of substance on the local literary scene”.
Editor of the Anthology Edward O’Dwyer spoke of the new collection.
“…this book is an important Limerick publication, but more than that it is (simply) an important publication. With it, Revival Press has looked at, and done something for, the need to give emerging poets a push; encouragement to set them in motion on the big journey towards publishing full collections…”
Sextet – A Revival Poetry Anthology is available online at www.revivalpress.com and from all usual outlets priced €15.00 paperback. ISBN: 978-0-09554722-9-9
