So if they do it alphabetically, I will be reading first. Don't be late or you will miss me! Details here
There are lots of events for the festival. Details here
I am hoping to get down in time to see Carolyn Forché and Karen Solie, two Canadian poets on Friday.
I have a line in one of my poems about Canadians. Maybe I should read that one.
I wish i'd booked a place on the Saturday workshop with Carolyn Forché but I didn't and it's full.
Then a craft talk with Karen Solie on Saturday early afternoon, 2.30pm.
Håkan Sandell and Lyor Shternberg a Swedish and an Israeli poet after me at 7pm.
Immanuel Mifsud and Tomaž Šalamun from Malta and Slovenia at 8.30pm.
Finally greatly looking forward to Gwyneth Lewis, the national poet of Wales and the accomplished Kathryn Simmonds at 10pm.
I went to the festival a couple of years ago and had a lovely time. I particularly enjoyed the exposure to poets from abroad and in translation.
These are all in the Cork Arts Theatre on Carrolls Quay.
