Boyne Readings and Open Mic - February

A writers’ group based in Navan will be the featured readers at the February Boyne Readings and Open Mic in Trim tomorrow (Thursday) evening.

“This is the first time we have invited a group,” said Paddy Smith, chairman of the Boyne Writers Group, which organises the monthly readings on the third Thursday of each month. The readings take place in the Village Hall of the Knightsbridge Retirement Home, Longwood Road, Trim, starting at 8pm.

“We don’t expect the Small Impact Writers’ Group to live up to their name,” said Paddy. “Not because they’re from Navan but because they have been making a big impact, from what we hear. "This is their first visit to Trim as a group and we expect very big things from them,” he said.

The Navan group recently published its first collection of short stories and poems, entitled ‘Hidden Depths’. At the Trim event, members of the group will take it in turn to read their own material and other members’ work, both from this publication and from their other writings.

In the open mic session after the featured readings, visiting writers and members of the host Boyne Writers Group will read their own work – poetry, prose and plays – for the entertainment of those present.

Visitors are particularly welcome, whether they wish to read or not. The €5 admission includes tea/coffee and biscuits.
