GREAT NEWS!!!

GREAT NEWS!!!

I'm delighted to announce that I am now artists in residence at the Dunamaise Arts Centre in Portlaoise. This is the first time there has been a 'spoken word' residency and I'm honoured to have been awarded it! Thanks to the Laois Arts Office, Creative Ireland and all the staff at Dunamaise. My work will see me giving poetry workshops in the schools, your theatre, Youth Reach and prison service across the county.

Recently I teamed up with Midnight Mango. They work as a booking agent for over 50 bands across the UK & Ireland. I am the first poet they have on their roster, so it should be a learning experience for us all. I hope to venture across the waters a lot more in 2018 and I already have 4 gigs lined up which is excited!

Lastly and rather oddly I now have legal representation in the UK. I'm working with Sound Advice who work with musicians across the UK & Ireland. I am the first poet they have taken on and it has me intrigued to see how we can help each other...
