I was please to have some work published lately in Crossways Magazine and The Bangor Literary Journal. Both these journals are new ventures and I believe Crossways has just opened its submission period for a summer issue!!

The Bangor Literary Journal has published a special Spring/Easter issue called Spring's Bride, the title is taken from the title of my included poem, Spring's Bride which is an homage to the cherry blossom tree. The poems is 4 or 5 years old and I have reworked it a few times. I'm delighted it now has a home. Enjoy the poem and much more here.

In other news, Boyne Berries 23 is being launched this Thursday, 5th April, at 8 p.m. in The Castle Arch Hotel, Trim, by poet Rachel Coventry. Rachel’s poetry has featured in many journals including Poetry Ireland Review, The SHOp, Cyphers, Stony Thursday Book, and Honest Ulsterman. She was selected for the Poetry Ireland Introductions Series in 2014. In 2016 she won the Galway University Hospitals Arts Trust Annual Poetry Competition and was short-listed for the Patrick Kavanagh Poetry Award. She is writing a PhD on Heidegger’s poetics at the National University of Ireland, Galway. Salmon Poetry will publish her debut collection this year.

If you can make it entry is free and copies of the magazine (which I edit) will be available to purchase on the night for €10. Contributors to the issue will read their work. All welcome! Tea, coffee and biscuits served courtesy of Boyne Writers Group.
