POETRY BUS MAGAZINE LIVE LAUNCH
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.
