A Must For All Writers: An Sanasán Uisce/ The Water Glossary

Writers Resource: The Water Glossary by Carol Anne ConnollyAs writers, like anyone in a trade, we like to have tools at our disposal and dictionaries, thesauruses and glossaries are some of the main tools we should have.

Just like my favourite dictionary, yes, I said I have a favourite dictionary, John Drurys ‘The Poetry Dictionary‘, I now have a new gem to add to my favourites, and this is Carol Anne Connolly’s ‘The Water Glossary‘.

This is a gorgeous little book, a collection of Irish terms for water in many different contexts producing stunning descriptions of landscape, weather and the natural environment, brilliantly researched and perfectly produced and designed.

New Poems and a New Poetry Book To End with on 12/12/12

New Poems and a New Poetry Book To End with on 12/12/12It’s been a very busy year, especially since the summer and will continue into the new year. The summer here in Galway was nuts, so busy with festival after festival and the Volvo Ocean Race was huge and a great success, but, meant I had to work more hours than I needed to but was enjoyable.

I have had some poems and articles published in the last few months that I hadn’t the time to post about. I have also been busy creating our first poetry book, an anthology for a group of writers I am involved. Last Friday we had our book launch and it was a huge success with a large crowd and plenty of interest in our book.
