I am a member of the Carlow Writers’ Cooperative and we have been working with John McKenna over the last while. We’re going to be doing a few readings in the coming months. One of them will be a live recording during the Carlow Arts Festival and will be played on KCLR, our local radio station in the region. I’ll be reading around 4 of my poems.

Just heard that I got featured in this magazine today! Hooray! I like the idea of this Pay What You Want plan. If you’d like to pre-order a copy of the magazine and read my poem, “I was your Golem”, that would be great!
