I really consider it a privilege to be the featured reader for the latest Stanzas gathering in Limerick. It’s is not just a platform for emerging writers, but a very defined movement of bold and exacting talents, one which I have a great deal of respect for. The reading takes place in Cafe Noir, Robert Street, this Friday, at 7pm.
