World War One Anthology - Behind the Lines

To mark the decade of commemoration and the importance of the Great War members of LitLab Writers Group, including myself, set ourselves the task of reading the Anglo-Celt newspaper for 1915 and finding items which sparked their creativity. The volume of poetry and prose, Behind the Lines, is the result.

The collection will be officially launched by Myles Dungan on this Friday evening at 6.30 in Bailieborough as part of the Bailieborough Poetry Festival.

The book contains copies of the original items, news reports, advertisements, alongside the poem or prose which resulted. The collection is edited by Julia Rice O’Dea and there is a foreword by writer and broadcaster, Myles Dungan.

Copies can be purchased online on the Behind the Lines page on the festival website.
