Ó Bhéal Winter Warmer 2014


The inimitable Raven reading at last year’s festival

I’m really happy to once more be involved in putting together the Ó Bhéal Winter Warmer Festival, now in its second year. The festival line-up features not only 21 excellent poets, some accompanied by musicians, but also poetry-films, comedy improv, poetry theatre and a closed-mic. It’s all happening on November 21st and 22nd  in the amphitheatre at Cork’s Sample Studios. Kudos to Paul Casey and the rest of the Ó Bhéal board for putting together this event aimed at uniting, for a weekend at least,  the various strands and tendencies that constitute Ireland’s contemporary poetry scene.
