Complete Lounge Lizard Tour Dates

I am proud to announce my Lizard tour. I'll be popping up in many places in Ireland.

If anyone runs poetry readings and wants to talk to me about putting your town on the map (tongue in cheek here), contact me. Email is top of the sidebar. I'd love to add somewhere in the North, Donegal, Kilkenny, Waterford, Ennis, West Cork, Kildare and Sligo, amongst others.

And please, please come along. I'll be ever-so grateful. There's nothing worse than reading to a room of people who consist of the organisers, the barstaff and other readers.

Monday 25th January 9pm

The wonderful weekly mix of Spoken word and music, not to be missed. If you can't make my date, do check it out another Monday night. Recommended. Run by Stephen James Smith

This tour is a great idea. You should get tour t-shirts made!

Have no idea geographically how far apart these places are (apologies), but Good Luck and good travelling.

Ann said...

If you have any tour dates in the Waterford area June, July or early August would def be there. Would love to attend one of your readings. Second the t-shirt idea!
