Organised by The Limerick Writers' Centre this popular monthly reading and open-mic continues to attract audiences with a mix of poetry, prose and music.

This month our guests are Tim Cunningham and Richard Halperin.

Tim Cunningham
was born in Limerick in 1942 and educated at Limerick C.B.S. and Birkbeck College, London. He has lived in Limerick, Tipperary, Dublin, Trowbridge, London, Newark (Delaware) and, presently, Billericay. He has published and read widely. His first collection, 'Don Marcelino's Daughter' was published by Peterloo Poets in 2001 and reprinted in 2002 and 2004. His second collection 'Unequal Thirds' was published in 2006, again by Peterloo. His third collection, Kyrie, was published by Revival Press in 2008.

Richard W. Halperin’s first poetry collection Anniversary was published in 2010 and his second Shy White Tiger will appear in 2012 – both via Salmon Poetry Limited. In 2005 for UNESCO, he edited the free downloadable teacher education book Reading and Writing Poetry, in which fifty poets worldwide give their views on the subject.

Everyone is invited to take part in the open-mic after the main event, poets, storytellers, musicians and writers . Even if you don't write you are welcome to bring something along to read. The night begins at 8.00pm and admission is free. So join us on the night and make this event something special.
