A Not So Stony Thursday!

A gorgeous evening here in Limerick for the launch of The Stony Thursday anthology.

This year’s editor is Mary O’Donnell, and it looks like the city has put on its best frock for her! So unlike the stormy night last year.

I’m very happy that my poem ‘Grave Good’ is in such lovely company.

Away to Beara

Wild Atlantic words

I’m delighted to say that my poem At Sea has won second prize in the Wild Atlantic Words poetry competition, organized by the good people at Hungry Hill Writing. You can find out more about them here, and you can buy the Wild Atlantic Words Anthology, and those from previous years, via the website.

I won a fantastic prize – and can’t wait to use it!

More about that on my writer’s blog, readwritehere.wordpress.com later. For now, it’s tooty-pip as I’m off to the beautiful Beara pensinsula to hang out with poets, read my work, and take a workshop with Breda Wall Ryan.

Lucky me.
