The Poetry Divas are going to Anam Cara Writer's and Artist's Retreat

Next Saturday, 20 August 2016 The Poetry Divas are going to Anam Cara Writing Retreat in Beara, Co Cork. And we have a special guest diva, Eileen Sheehan. Should be great. Please come along if you are anywhere near.
The Poetry Divas is a collective of women poets. We read our own poems at events and festivals all over Ireland, blurring the wobbly boundary between page and stage. We tailor each show to the occasion and audience and aim to give a deliciously infectious show that’s bound to touch a nerve. We are all well-published and anthologised poets in our own right: Kate Dempsey's debut collection, The Space Between, was published by Doire Press in 2016; Maeve O’Sullivan has published three collections: Initial Response (haiku, 2011), Vocal Chords (poetry, 2014) and A Train Hurtles West (haiku, 2015); and Special guest diva Eileen Sheehan's collections are Song of the Midnight Fox and Down the Sunlit Hall. Given the name and ethos of the venue, our theme for this performance will be friendship." After their presentation, the mike will be open for more poetry and song.
Donations on the night in aid of Cork Art Cancer Support House in Bantry.
8:00 P.M.
Anam Cara Writer's and Artist's Retreat, Eyeries, Beara
