Skylight 47 Launch

The July Over The Edge Writers’ Gathering at Galway City Library, St. Augustine Street on Thursday, 11 July, 6.30-8pm will see the launch of the second issue of Skylight 47, with special guests Eamonn Wall and Patrick Kehoe.

All contributors to this issue of Skylight 47 are invited to come along and read their poem from the magazine. All are welcome. There is no cover charge. Copies of the magazine will be on sale on the evening and can also be purchased here.

Eamonn Wall, Professor of Irish Studies/Professor of English at the University of Missouri-St. Louis and a Wexford native, will officially launch the new issue and read some of his own poems. Poet Patrick Kehoe will also read from his debut collection, It's Words You Want.

I was lucky to be included in Issue One of this poetry newspaper and I'm delighted that my collection, Asking for Directions, is being reviewed in this issue.
