It is Irish Poetry Day today. A blog is in order. The illustration portends news and news there is. In the previous blog, I was able to say that the I had submitted my dissertation for the Masters. Now I can say that my submission has been successful. Great relief and jubilation all round.

To add to the celebrations, I will be reading one of my poems on the Poetry Programme on RTE Radio 1 on Sunday 2nd May at 7.30 pm.

In addition, another of my poems will appear in Lifespan Vol 2, Growing Up which has just been published by Pure Slush.

As part of the Bealtaine Festival, The Bealtaine Writers responded to the Paula Meehan’s As if by Magic, the Book of the Festival. On 20th of May we will be reading those responses

Since I completed the course in March, I have taken to writing short pieces and seeing where they lead me. I was surprised to realise that my focus has been on my youngest grandchild. I suppose that may be because we spend every morning together. As usual, please read, enjoy, share and send me some feedback.
