Boyne Berries 15

Boyne Berries 15 will be launched this coming Thursday, the 27th March, at 8 p.m. in the Castle Arch Hotel, Trim Co. Meath.  There are many fine poems and prose pieces included.

Every issue of Boyne Berries is special and especially as it's published just twice a year it is always worth the wait.  However this 15th issue of the magazine marks something of a transition as Michael Farry is stepping down as editor and I am going to edit the magazine.  This is going to be a great challenge and a learning experience for me. Thank you to Michael for his seven years of service.  Nobody could have done a better job.  

The cover for the magazine is by Greg Hastings.  I love this particular cover as it revisits the berries of issue 1.  

Congratulations too to Michael on his recent publication in the Australian magazine of new writing; regime  

Boyne Berries will be available to purchase on the night of the launch and it can also be purchased here Boyne Berries buy  You can keep up to date with details of events, submission periods and literary news via the Boyne Writers' Facebook Page BWG Facebook
