Last night saw a very successful reading at The Ink Factory in Dublin organised by The Belleville Park Pages, The Bohemyth and Cave Writings. Twelve readers performed (four from each of the groups) showcasing dynamic and varied work in all genres.
I always love seeing Christodoulos Makris and his reading last night twisted my brain in new (and welcome!) directions. Liz Reapy regaled us with stories of childhood and dead dogs, and Dimitra Xidous brought me to a new understanding of eggs! Alvy Carragher nailed her performance - she spoke with confidence and charisma, and she's right - more poems should feature Patrick Kavanagh and Michael Jackson together!
I was able to pick up a few copies of The Belleville Park Pages, which were generously provided for free. Looking forward to reading those, and to submitting work to them in the future.
My next reading will be in July - details to follow as I get them :)
