Geraldine O'Kane and myself were honoured to be able to open at the Farrago Poetry Heartbreak(er) Slam in the The Poetry Society Cafe in London this weekend. Many thanks to John Paul O'Neill (a fellow Tyrone bard and a generous host) for letting Geraldine and I open proceedings, our very first time reading in London. Loved hearing all the difference voices and views.
From there, we travelled to Newham Poetry House for a great workshop and reading on Saturday, as part of Newham Word Festival. Also big thanks to Sonia Quintero, Karim Leo and the team for being so welcoming, and for listening to our poems. Real positive community work being done there!
