A copy of the above arrived in the post during the week and browsing through it you cannot fail to be impressed. The festival itself runs from the 4th to the 9th of September and promises a host of stars, events, workshops, seminars, films, tours and this year the dlr Poetry Now Festival taking place at the same time. So there! Borrowing from the "Welcome" by Maureen Kennelly, "What unifies our festival writers is that they simply cannot stop taking risks on the page" and that's as good a recommendation as you'll get. More details and info at www.mountainstosea.ie and nice place to spend a few hours.
