Fabulous February


With Irish poet, Neil McCarthy at his book launch in Vienna this weekend. Stopgap Grace, Publisher: Salmon Poetry

This weekend, both the creative writing and the short story programs began here in Vienna. A very busy time for me, getting to coach an intriguing bunch of international people. Nations represented:

  • Canada
  • UK
  • United States
  • Bolivia
  • Italy
  • Austria
  • Romania
  • Australia
  • Croatia

I might even have missed a county or two.  As you might imagine, the writing in both workshops reflects this wonderful cultural diversity.

Also went along to a book launch: Irish Poet, Neil McCarthy has just launched his fabulous book of poems: Stopgap Grace. Publisher: Salmon Poetry. Grabbed myself a signed copy, got a photo with Neil, and listened to him read a few poems from the collection. Great music too, from his musical “troubadour” friends from both Austria and Ireland.
