Reading at Eastside Arts Festival

A big thanks to everyone who attended our special Over The Edge / Poetry NI event last night at EastSide Visitor Centre for the EastSide Arts Festival, we had a great time reading for you and experiencing all your poems. A sold out crowd for a Monday night is amazing (poets usually haven't sobered up by then...)!

It was a thrill to read along the great and talented Kevin Higgins and Susan Millar DuMars, a rare double husband-and-wife teaming!

Big props to Rachel Kennedy for allowing us to do the gig in the first place, Matt McIvor for being an amazing soundman, and Gaynor Kane for handling tickets, registration and everything else, and of course to all the poets who came along and shared their work in the open mic.

I was reading poems from The A to Z of Belfast project that I did in 2015 under an ACNI General Arts Award. 'I have looked for inspiration' still gets me riled...
