2 New Poems in The Indian Review and a Reading at Over The Edge

Stephen Byrne reading at May Over the Edge Writers' GatheringLast week was one of the best of the year so far. I was a featured reader at the May Over the Edge Writers’ Gathering, went on a crazy fishing trip and had two new poems published in the Indian Review, an online website I regularly read.

It had been a while since I had done a reading and I cannot show enough appreciation to Susan Millar DuMars and Kevin Higgins for the invite and constant support.

Cúirt Festival Kicks Off With Seamus Heaney and Michael Longley

Cúirt Festival Kicks Off With Seamus Heaney and Michael LongleyGalway is the place to be right now if you are a fan of the arts and great literature. The Cúirt International Festival of Literature has kicked off and now hitting its 28th year, it still has the power to draw crowds and great artists and writers. This is my favourite time of the year in Galway and there is always a lot going on and tons of great gigs to go to.

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to be at a lunch with Seamus Heaney, Michael Longley and Edna O’Brien (working at the restaurant may have helped my admission to the exclusive lunch) and I just had to bring along Sarah Clancy for company and she was of course delighted to be my guest.
