It turned out to be a swell night. Full to capacity. My piece was one of the last; Hindsight, introducing Digby Butters to the Trim set.
Launch of Boyne Berries 14
|Orla Fay, Kate Dempsey and Caroline Carey Finn
If you happen to be anywhere in the Meath area on Thursday night next and poetry or the written word is your gift then the Castle Arch Hotel in Trim sees the launch of “Boyne Berries 14” the literary magazine of the Boyne Writers Group. Always an interesting read and one that attracts submissions that are both local and from much further afield it is now firmly established on the literary scene. Kate Dempsey of the “Emerging Writer Blog” and well known poet is the guest editor this time (Link to the right) and the start time for the event is 8pm. A chance to mix and mingle and maybe read a poem or two with refreshments afterwards. See Boyne Writers website for further details.

A piece called The Last Typewriter tells the story about learning to type and the introduction of word processors in the modern office.
The inspiration for a piece written about the County Shows. Flower arrangements, purebred bulls and baking for the home industries tent.
I have been concentrating on writing the one article for the last few months. No writers groups over the summer. I actually have about 5 chapters. So for me that is stamina.
