Boyne Berries 9 Launch tomorrow night
Delighted to be going down to Trim again tomorrow night for the launch of Boyne Berries 9, always a great evening with top class readings. I will probably have to leave straight from work but will probably change the steel toe-cap boots and hi-vis vest. Michael Farry has all the details of what and whom to expect and I am looking forward to it immensely. They certainly are a talented and creative bunch down there - Michael himself has been selected for this year's Poetry Ireland Introductions series; the incomparable Paddy Smith is having one of his plays put on by the Trim Drama Group as part of their spring season; James Linnane has just published his second book, Gotcha; Evan Costigan's latest published work, beautifully entitled The Instigation of Knickers in Japan, appears in Moth magazine; the always beguiling Orla Fay appears in the current edition of Crannog; and Caroline Finn is to feature in the 2011 Sunday Miscellany anthology. And they're all nice people too. Makes you sick. Anyway, the launch is on Thursday 31st March at 8pm in the Castle Arch Hotel, Trim. Be there or be a parallelogram with four equal sides and four 90 degree angles.
