Launch of Drawn to the Light

Our June Boyne Readings and Open Mic which takes place on this Thursday is special. It sees the launch of Orla Fay's poetry chapbook called Drawn the Light. This is the third Boyne Writers chapbook, Brendan Carey Kinane and myself have already published one each.

Orla, seen here reading at the May Open Mic, has become a well known presence in poetry magazines, print and online and her name appears with regularity in Poetry competition winners and commended lists.

She is also an accomplished short story writer having had one of hers selected for the Lonely Voice Short Stories series at the Irish Writers Centre last year. She blogs regularly about her poetry and other matters here.

The  Readings and Open Mic will take place on Thursday evening, 21 June (the summer solstice) at 8pm in the Knightsbridge Retirement Village Coffee Shop, Longwood Road, Trim, Co. Meath.  Paddy Smith, Chairman of Boyne Writers' Group, will be MC.

An open mic session will follow the launch of  the chapbook.  A copy of the chapbook will be available free of cost to those who attend. All are welcome to attend and read.  Admission 5 euro which included tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided.
