LitLab ~ The Trim Poetry Festival 2020!



Lit Lab was initiated by the Cavan and Meath Arts Offices back when! I remember Tommy telling me about the group, so it would be pre 2010 at least. Anyway first chance to listen to some of the members although I have read some of their poems. The Trim Poetry Festival has left a nice collection of videos for dipping into and will probably load one or two more.

MeathWritersCircle/Trim Poetry Festival 2020!



With thanks to Michael Farry for editing on the above. The Trim Poetry Festival which was postponed last March due to the corona virus was held over the weekend as an online event and if you click on the link to the right there is a whole library collection of poems for your entertainment. Every cloud has a silver lining and the video presentations here means that you can browse through at your leisure. Congratulations to all concerned. Will hit the share button more than a few times I think. The event saw the launch of 'Boyne Berries 27' by Orla Fay and Michael Farry's new poetry collection 'Troubles' by Anne Tannam.
