Following the launch of the Cuirt Festival 2017 Brochure on Tuesday, the submission window is now open for the ever popular Spoken Word event, to be held on Thursday April 27th at 6.30pm in the Kings Head. The window for submissions closes on April 13th. Entries can be poems or short fiction (up to 3 minutes). Those selected from these submissions will be invited to present their pieces on the day to what is always a very lively but receptive and encouraging audience, as well as 3 judges who will pick three people to go on to take part in the Cuirt Showcase at Electric Picnic in September.
This event is always packed out. There will also be a special guest performer on the day, former winner – Alvy Carragher.
Hard copy entries (or on DVD) can be sent or given in to Galway Arts Centre: 47 Dominick St. Galway, or via email to email@example.com (same email for queries).
Happy New Year Everyone! Delighted to be able to break in the new year with some poetry, prose and song – reading alongside Moya Roddy in the amazing Record Break Cafe in Ennis, this Friday 6th January, with our wonderful host, Sinead Nic Sioda.
Thank you to the most warm and wonderful audience who came along to the Galway launch of my collection ‘How to Bake a Planet’ yesterday in the Town Hall Theatre – and to Salmon Poetry – and to Moya for mad but lovely things she said about me!
I’ve put the launch of How to Bake a Planet back a week to Saturday November 12th, 3pm – to avoid clash with Words Ireland event on the 5th, which I’m sure a lot of Galway writers would like to go to. But still the same venue, (Town Hall Theatre bar) same time, same wonderful Lorna Siggins doing the intro, same me! Hope everyone can still make it.
