Launch of Angela Carr's First Collection

One name that has been popping up on the poetry radar a lot recently is Angela Carr. That's Angela T Carr by the way as there is another poet in the US.

Angela was selected to read at this year's Poetry Ireland Introductions, won the Allingham Festival Poetry Competition, has an unsettling poem in the latest issue of Abridged (Torquemada), has been published in Mslexia, The Pickled Body, upcoming in Boyne Berries and the Cork Literary Review, was shortlisted for Over The Edge writer, the Listowel single poem and Gregory O'Donoghue competitions. Her manuscript was highly commended in the Patrick Kavanagh Award and won the Cork Literary Review Poetry Manuscript Competition in 2013.

There's no end to it!

So the manuscript, named "How to Lose your Home & Save Your Life" is being published by Bradshaw Books, launched this week, Friday 14th November at 7pm in the Vintage Room upstairs at Workman's Club, Dublin.

All welcome. Should be a good evening.
