Boyne Berries is the literary magazine of the Boyne Writers' Group. It is published bi-annually, in the spring and in the autumn. It was first published on the first of March 2007. I am very proud to be associated with the group and its magazine and to have served on the editorial board in the past with Paddy Smith, chairman of the group and Michael Farry, secretary and editor.
Kate Demspey, of The Poetry Divas and the Emerging Writer blog, is the guest editor for this issue of Boyne Berries. She won the Plough Prize in 2010 for the short poem Amsterdam Otto Recommends which you can listen to her reading here http://www.theploughprize.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=150:kate-dempsey&catid=68:poets
The Launch takes place in The Castle Arch Hotel, Trim, Co. Meath this coming Thursday, 26th September, at 8pm.

I have a poem included in the magazine which I intend to practice reading prior to the event. It should be a great night.
I've thirty one lines of my new swan poem written but I'm leaving it to settle for now and I will return to it tomorrow.
