2 Poems in RædLeafPoetry-India Online

2 Poems in RædLeafPoetry-India OnlineI’ve always had a fascination and love of Indian Poetry, past and contemporary and find myself in love with the new voices sprouting up and sharing their work across India (anyone who knows me personally knows of my Tishani Doshi writers crush) and a relatively new non-profit website promoting new Indian and international writing recently caught my eye and I have found some excellent writing and enthusiasm within here.

So it is with great pleasure that I have had two poems published on the website (thank you Linda) and delighted to be in some fine company alongside Max Babi, Ben Mazer, Angelina Llonguera, Todd Swift and others.

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.
