This year we are delighted to include a special fringe event and we invite you to an afternoon of poetry and mead with the Poetry Divas. The Poetry Divas are a glittery collective of women poets who read their own poetry tailored to the event and audience. They promise a deliciously infectious show that’s bound to touch a nerve and blur the wobbly boundary between page and stage.

Maeve O’Sullivan is a ninja of various poetic forms including the haiku and has published four collections with Alba Publishing. Amanda Bell’s debut poetry collection First the Feathers (Doire Press 2018) was shortlisted for the Shine Strong Award. Kate Dempsey makes mead and writes poetry; her debut collection The Space Between had a poem commended for the Forward Poetry Prize.
