MORE BUS SHENANIGANS AND TING

Driving for the first time in the history of the universe is the talented Jessica Maybury, so get over there for Mon 8th Nov with Jessica Maybury HERE
Jessica runs her own mobile patisserie and herbal remedy shop from the back of a classic 60's Volkswagen Camper Van, which doubles up as a roaming chipper and bedroom by night. Jessica won worldwide critical acclaim for her theories and papers on' macrobiotics and the deep fried Mars Bar in the modern culinary clique' and' the literary influences of JCB's in both the sanskrit short story and topiary.'

AND, WHILE I'M SHOUTING, DON'T FORGET THE LAUNCH!! DETAILS BELLOWED BELOW...



Yes, folks, the earth used be flat then roundness was discovered,people used to walk miles to the next village to buy things, then Aston Martins were invented. Cyanide , lead and dog poo were used to clean teeth, then toothpaste was invented, people used to read boring poetry then THE POETRY BUS MAGAZINE was invented.

And to mark this huge leap forward for mankind we are having an entertainment EXTRAVAGANZA in The International Bar Wicklow Street Dublin Eiré and EVERYBODY is invited, so get yer coat, get walking, hop on a bicycle, a bus, a boat, a plane, a kangaroo, JUST GET THERE! Monday 8th November 8pm.

There will be freshley brewed Guinness* there will be music from the brilliant Colm ó Snodaigh of Kilá fame, there will be real live actual BUS POETS reading poems from THE POETRY BUS MAGAZINE including host Stephen James Smith, Mags Treanor, Pj Nolan (AKA Scalder), Niamh (various) Bagnell, Triona (Domestic Oubliette) Walsh, Kate (Emerging Writer) Dempsey, Carol Boland, Peadar (TotalFeckinEEjit) O'Donoghue and recently crowned All Ireland Poetry Slam Champion Colm Keegan.
Other things will also surely happen.

The old skool poetry book Soundings will also be revamped and re-launched with poets reading their fave old skool poems.

How much does this smorgesbord of entertainment cost? Is it €50 ? No! Is it €20? No !

I'd give my left arm to be there - if I hadn't already given it away for a lollipop. It'll be a great night for sure.
