On Friday 24 March I'll be reading with Aodán McCardle and Suzanne Walsh as part of a gorse showcase reading at Mountains to Sea Book Festival in Dun Laoghaire.
The event is part of the Poetry Now strand of the festival programme, and it is billed as "a sampling of poets working at the boundaries of performance, visual art and poetry whose work has appeared in gorse, the Dublin-based journal that has quickly established itself as an exciting presence on the European literary scene". It takes place at dlr LexIcon, The Studio with a start time of 8.30pm. Tickets are €10 / €8 conc.
The reading will be followed by a reception marking the publication of gorse No. 8.
Thanks to Alice Lyons, Poetry Now curator at Mountains to Sea, for inviting gorse to be involved in this year's edition. PN2017 boasts an exciting lineup also including readings from Vona Groarke, Paula Meehan, Mairéad Byrne, Matthew Welton, Sarah Howe, Nick Laird, Michael Longley, Fanny Howe, Harry Clifton, Katie Donovan, Vahni Capildeo and Stephen Sexton.
