August At The Edge Cavan

At the Edge is a regular reading series organised by Kate Ennals with assistance from Cavan Arts Office. It is held in Cavan Library on Tuesday evenings at 6.30. 

It has build up a dedicated and knowledable audience many of whom also participate in the Open Mic which follows the readings.
There are usually two or three featured readers, well-know poets or prose writers, and the list of those who have read there is impressive.
Last evening, 27 August the new season started with a well-attended and most enjoyable event featuring four writers. Kate Ennals, the organiser, introduced the readers as "neighbours" coming as they did from neighbouring counties.
The writers were Glen Wilson, Jackie Gorman, Anthony J Quinn and Jessamine O’Connor, poets apart from crime writer Anthony who confessed to really wanting to be a poet. His crime writing does have a lyrical touch about it, in spite of the dark deeds he narrates.
The poetry was great, as was the delivery and the audience really appreciated the variety of subject matter and tone. Well done to all concerned!

Keep an eye on Kate Ennals Facebook page for details of the next reading.
