Writers/Poets Galore Line Up for Cavan for the 2019 AT The Edge Literary Evening
AT The Edge, Cavan will bring a fab line up of writers and poets to town this year. Funded by Cavan Arts Office, AT The Edge, Cavan will be hosting ten literary artists over three evenings: Tuesday 30 April, Tuesday August 27 August, and Tuesday 29 October 2019, and is organising an extra Irish, English and Scottish Poetry reading on Tuesday 15 October.
Irish poets and writers coming to read are Annemarie ni Churreain, Ron Carey, Edward O’Dwyer, Jessamine O’Connor, Glen Wilson, Jackie Gorman, Adam Wyeth, Anne Walsh Donnelly, Orla Fay and Anne Tannem. Further biographical information will be available nearer the events. There is also a special Scots/English/Irish and Welsh evening on Tuesday 15 October where Hugh Mcmillan, Magi Gibson, Marcas Mac an Tuairneir,, Neil Young and Kate Ennals will read. All the events will take place at the Johnston Library, Cavan at 6.30pm, and will be followed by an open mic so local people can also show off their own literary talent.
“I have seen most of the poets and writers who are coming to Cavan this year perform and we are in for a treat,” said Kate Ennals, curator of AT The Edge.
“This is the sixth year of AT The Edge Cavan, and I am proud and pleased that it is so well supported by both the Arts Office and local people. Over the years, Cavan has amassed a strong network of writers and poets, and AT The Edge, Cavan is an opportunity for people to come together, listen and read themselves, as well as touch base and exchange news. It is great to see the turn out and AT The Edge, Cavan is a really good evening.
“I also want to thank the poets and writers who come to read. Most are well known, published poets, who are busy reading, or at workshops across the country and abroad, yet they still enjoy coming to read and meet local people at local arts events. And there is nothing better than listening to someone read their own work in comfortable surroundings, and we are lucky to be able to use the Johnston Library free of charge. It’s a lovely evening, not pretentious, and worth a try. I look forward to seeing people there.”
