Tom Dredge Chapbook Launched
Chapbook 4 in our series of Boyne Chapbooks, The Path of Progress by Tom Dredge was launched in the Castle Arch Hotel, Trim on Thursday 21 November. We were delighted with the numbers who turned out for this, thanks especially to those who travelled long distances.
Thanks also to the members of Meath Writers Circle who attended and it was also nice to see some former (lapsed?) members of Boyne Writers Group present.
Paddy Smith did his usual lively, amusing introduction and Tom introduced and read six of the poems from the chapbook.
This was followed by an Open Mic in which over twelve participated. Good prose and poetry, well delivered to an appreciative audience.
The evening ended with tea, coffee and biscuits and the important chats about the nature and future of poetry, the future of publishing, the state of the country and importance of groups like Boyne Writers.
