My first poetry collection After The Fall will be published by Salmon Poetry in the near future. I’ll post details of the launch as soon as I get them.
In the meantime, I’ll be doing some readings and events over the coming months to showcase the poems.
The first outing is an event called “Poetry First” as part of the Red Line Book Festival run by South Dublin Libraries.
“Renowned poet Nessa O’Mahony chairs a panel discussing First Collections with Brian Kirk, Eamonn Lynskey and Phil Lynch. How do you get your name known as a poet today? What constitutes a collection and who should you approach with it? Packed full of vital information on how the business works and tips for getting your own work published, find out what it feels like to hold your first book in your hand.”
This event starts at 6pm at the Civic Theatre in Tallaght on Wednesday 11th October 2017, and will be followed by the Red Line Poetry Competition Award Ceremony, which was judged this year by Mary O’Donnell, renowned poet and novelist.
Other upcoming readings include:
- At The Edge, Cavan Library, at 6.30pm on Tuesday 24th October 2017, along with Afric McGlinchey and Mairéad Donnellan.
- Dublin Book Festival at 1pm on Friday 3rd November in Smock Alley along with Amanda Bell and Emma McKervey
- Ó Bhéal at Long Valley Bar in Cork on Monday 20th November 2017
More details of readings and launch to follow soon!
