The open-mic for poets starts at 6pm. Participants poets should bring along two poems to read. The reading will include guest appearances from poets Simon Lewis, who will be reading from his recently published poetry collection, and Dani Gill, who will be reading from her first collection-in-progress ‘After Love’.
The evening will be MC'd by Kevin Higgins and both open-mics will feature reading from their long-listed stories and poems by some of the writers on the long list for the 2016 Over The Edge New Writer of The Year competition, for which Kenny’s is one of the sponsors.
All long-listed writers, who can make it to Kenny’s on the day, are invited to come and read.
The long-list will be announced at this Thursday's Over The Edge: Open Reading in Galway City Library. (6.30-8pm).
