The Woven Tale Press Vol III #7

There are four old(ish) poems of mine on p16-17 in the new issue of The Woven Tale Press.

'Comet' was originally written during the Comic Relief sponsor-a-poem challenge back in March 2013.

'Land' was originally published in the collection 'left of soul' back in 2010.

'Canvas for Dreaming' was first drafted back in Oct/Nov '13, and originally entitled 'Moon'. If memory serves me correctly, it was first born in a workshop taken by Shelley Tracey.

'The Silence of the Peaceful Reader' is from Feb '08, proving that some poems take longer to find a home than others...

Many, many thanks to North West Words for their kindness and generosity in hosting Geraldine and myself on Thursday night in Letterkenny. We absolutely loved the event, had a lot of fun doing it, and meeting everyone. Consider me bowled over by the lovely words and well wishes from everyone.

Many thanks to Maureen Curran, Eamonn Bonner and the committee for having us the, and great to see Deirdre Hines, Guy le Jeune and Patrick McNicholl there as well.

The Monsters In My Tummy

I was looking for my birth certificate today and found these sketches in an old folder. They're all taken from the Roman Dirge comic book 'The Monsters In My Tummy' and must be at least eight years old. I have forgotten all about them. Pleased to have rediscovered them after so long!
