Oranmore Library Poetry Reading Group will present a poetry reading on Thursday 12th of September at 7.30pm.
The readers who are from the Galway area will read from the second edition of possibly the most interesting poetry magazine being currently published in Ireland—Skylight 47. The local produced publication takes a newspaper format and includes reviews, comments and new poems from local, national and international writers.
Among those reading in Oranmore Library on the night are two of the Skylight 47 Editors Susan Lindsay, whose collection Whispering the Secrets was published by Doire Press in 2011—she has another collection Fear Knot due out next month, and Kevin O’Shea, The Art of Non Fishing winner of the 2012 Cúirt New Writing Prize.
Also taking part will be locally based American poet, prose writer and workshop facilitator Susan Millar Du Mars, Lorna Shaughnessy whose collections Torching the Brown River and Witness Trees are published by Salmon, Connie Masterson who has been shortlisted for the Over The Edge Showcase and others who have been published in Skylight 47.
