June 'On the Nail' Literary Gathering

The Limerick Writers' Centre Presents
The June 'On the Nail' Literary Gathering
Tuesday 4th June 2013 @ The Loft Venue @ The Locke Bar, Georges Quay, Limerick.

Start 8.00pm sharp!

This month launch of Revival Literary Journal No.26 plus guest readers Carlos Reyes and Knute Skinner.

Revival Literary Journal has been published in Limerick since 2009. The latest edition contains poetry, prose and reviews from local, national and international contributors.

Knute Skinner lives in Lahince, Co. Clare. His most recent collection, Fifty Years: Poems 1957-2007 (Salmon Poetry), contains new work along with poems from thirteen previous books. His collection The Other Shoe won the 2004–2005 Pavement Saw Chapbook Award. A memoir, Help Me to a Getaway, was published by Salmon in 2010.

Carlos Reyes is a noted poet, writer and translator. Additionally, he is a book editor and publisher, and often writes freelance reviews of poetry books. When he's not travelling or staying in his cottage in Ireland, he lives in Portland, Oregon. Of his work Carolyn Kizer has said: Mr. Reyes is one of our local and national treasures. His poetry is as clear and strong as his social conscience. One is always struck by his sensual and sensory qualities: the touch, taste, feel, color of things, and his ability to capture a mood, a world, in a handful of lines.

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.

NOTE: Our special authors book table will again be in operation, so if you want your book, CD's etc publicised make sure you are represented on the table. Contact Dominic Taylor at 087 2996409 to make arrangements.
