At last! The final proof read, last comma in place! The special Boyne Berries to mark our tenth issue is with the printers. It's a much different production to the black and white, spare magazine we usually produce. This is a larger format, has colour throughout, and has a number of colour images, some full page, included.
The usual mix of prose and poetry (and drama!) though with contributions from Trim, Meath, rest of Ireland, UK, North America and other parts.
Peter Fallon, poet and publisher, contributed a poem which is perfect for the magazine and has been given pride of place at the front. He is also performing the Trim launch which takes place on Thursday 29 September in the Castle Arch Hotel, Trim at 8.00pm All welcome!!
Kevin Higgins, who will perform the Galway launch in Charlie Byrne's bookshop on 30 September at 6pm, has a poem included as well. Others included are James Lawless, Susan Connolly, Niamh Boyce, Alan McMonagle, Deirdre McClay etc etc.
We are looking forward to the two launches. The only problem might be what do we do for Boyne Berries 11. Will we be able to return to our quiet little magazine after the gloss and colour of issue 10? We'll see!!
