UK poet Bernadette Cremin for September Over The Edge: Open Reading
Marcella Morgan is originally from Maynooth, but has been living in Galway for the past year and a half. She spends her days fixin’ troushers in an alterations shop in town, and her nights writing poems about her angry womb. She has attended several writing workshops with Susan Millar DuMars where she learnt how to make a bomb using bread soda, an empty beer can and a thong. Susan also taught her how to spell trousers. Marcella has been short-listed for 2009 Over The Edge New Writer of The Year.
Shane Ó Maoildhia is from Carraroe in Connemara. He has been writing poetry since primary school. In May 2008 he attended a series of writing classes with Susan Millar DuMars to get some constructive criticism on his poetry, and started writing short stories. He graduated with a science degree from NUI Galway in 2005, and hopes to be teaching English in Japan this time next year. Shane has been short-listed for 2009 Over The Edge New Writer of The Year.
Bernadette Cremin lives in Brighton and has previously worked as a social worker, tea lady, sociology lecturer, TEFL teacher, bank clerk and waitress. She has published two collections of poetry, the award winning Perfect Mess (Biscuit Publishing, 2005) and Speechless (Waterloo Press, 2007). Bernadette has won a Year Of The Artist award, a performance poetry bursary and been published widely in the UK and Ireland. Her work featured in last year’s Forward Book of Poetry. She is currently doing a whistle stop reading tour of Ireland.
There will be an open-mic when the Featured Readers have finished. This is open to anyone who has a poem or story to share. New readers are always especially welcome. The evening will also see the announcement of the winners of the 2009 Over The Edge New Writer of The Year competition. The MC for the evening will be Susan Millar DuMars.
