Boyne Berries 12 will be launched on Thursday night, 27th September, at 8pm. The magazine will be launched by Professor Gregory Castle of the Department of English, Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona. There will be more to read on Michael Farry's Blog Michael Farry.
Boyne Berries 12 costs 8 euro and it can be purchased at a reduced rate on the night of the launch or from The Boyne Writers' website Boyne Berries. Antonia's book shop and Spar in Trim will also stock the issue.
I have a poem included called Leaving Oz which is about my time in Australia this year. This may be the first Boyne Berries launch I will miss since issue one was first published in March 2007. I've started a part-time degree level course and of course my lectures happen to be on Thursday nights. This Thursday our pictures are being taken for library i.d. Perhaps I will be able to slip away early. I'm not sure yet but I will be torn between the two.
