the community & me
I will be producing new work for The National Trust in August 2019 to commemorate the anniversary of Pop for Peace 1969 at Minnowburn, Northern Ireland. There will be a literary picnic, readings and music celebrating the history of this beautiful and important site.
I am excited to read some of my favourite poems to welcome the new students to the Seamus Heaney Centre at SHC Presents: Bang! These poems showcase the opportunities I've explored over the past two years including travel to Jordan, New York, and the life and work of Harry Styles.
A beautiful day for some poems
I was very excited to have been awarded a Digital Arts Mentorship Award with Create:Innovate:Armagh.
Over the past few months I developed my digital arts skills alongside Dr. Robin Price. The mentorship culminated in a Pop-Up Exhibition in Studio 1 at the Market Place Theatre & Arts Centre from March 12th-15th 2019. Our work transferred to R-Space Gallery in Lisburn in April 2019 for Materials, Messages, and Meaning: Body Language.

I have been selected by the London Library as a 2019/2020 Emerging Writer!
This is a really interesting programme in a very mysterious and prestigious library.
I'm looking forward to meeting the other participants and having access to time, space + resources to work on my first collection of poetry!
The pop-up Poetry Jukebox was installed at C.S. Lewis Square for its 'A Deeper Country' curation in honour of C.S. Lewis & his works.
It was a thrill to read with and now join the outstanding Poetry Jukebox alumni and I hope you will take a stroll to listen to our wonderful poems on your way about Belfast.
The Poetry Jukebox has now transferred to Strabane and is available for you to enjoy there!
