Boyne Readings - Kate Dempsey

Our monthly Boyne Readings and Open Mic continue on next Thursday April 15 at 8pm when the featured reader will be Kate Dempsey (above).

The Readings takes place monthly on the third Thursday in The Village Hall, Knightsbridge Village, Longwood Road, Trim. Each night features one or two well known writers who read from their work. This is followed by an open mic session where everyone is welcome to read their own work. Time is allocated according to the number of readers. Just come along on the night and sign in. Admission 5 euro, Tea/Coffee, Biscuits.

Attendance has fluctuated between fifteen and thirty and the event is well supported by our own members and members of Meath Writers Circle.

Her poetry and fiction have been widely published in Ireland and the UK including in THE SHOp, Poetry Ireland Review, Boyne Berries, Abridged, Orbis, Newleaf and Revival among others. She has been nominated for, and won many prizes including The Francis MacManus, Cecil Day Lewis and Hennessy awards for Poetry and for Fiction.
