Notes from the Margins #35

SO! MUCH! NEWS!

Firstly, LINGO is Ireland’s most amazing spoken word festival.

AND I’M IN IT.

I’M EVEN ON THE POSTER!

I’m appearing at the Festival Klub event┬áin The Cobalt Cafe on Saturday 22nd October with some of my favourite people (Vickey Curtis! Ailish Kerr! Alicia Byrne Keane! BeRn!). And it’s totally FREE.

It’s going to be MEGA. Here’s the full blurb for it:

The piece I’m going to be performing is from a while back, a play-in-verse Blue Boy. There’s a page on the blog here about its initial run of performances in 2013/2014.

In even more amazing (and weirdly directly related news), five days after what’s probably going to be the last performance of Blue Boy ever, it’s getting published in Assaracus: A Journal of Gay Poetry #24, published by Sibling Rivalry Press!

You can order it direct from the publisher here, or it’s available on Amazon here, and The Book Depository eventually (not there yet).

And my last bit of news, my poem ‘Blackbird’ is going to be published in an academic journal, Studies in Arts and Humanties, in Volume 2, Issue 2, which will be out in December. You can view the journal here.

GOOD TIMES!
