Boyne Berries 8 Launched

Launch went very well - picture above. Crowd of about 50 there, writers, friends, relations, interested onlookers, potential Writers Group members etc. We had about seventeen contributors who read a great variety of work, poetry, story, comment, satire, all very well received by the audience.

Noel French ( pictured below with me at the launch) of Meath Heritage Centre officially launched the issue and spoke of the importance of the magazine and the Writers Group to the town and to individuals. He said that gatherings like this were vital to practitioners of what is a minority interest. He complimented the group on the variety of material in the issue and the geographical spread of the contributors.

Envelopes addressed to those who couldn't attend and copies of our little magazine will be on their way to India, Canada, USA, Italy and many parts of the UK and Ireland tomorrow. A good number of magazines sold - important to recoup outlay. The magazine section on the website has been updated and some material from the issue included.

You can buy a copy by using the PayPal button on the website.

Sounds like a great night was had by all, Michael. Wish I could've been there.

50 people in attendance. That's terrific. You know yourself, 20 people at a poetry reading is a crowd!

See you in Dromineer!
