NEWSLETTER from Alison Hackett JUNE 2017
Crabbing - a debut collection of poetry - was launched by Anne Tannam, co-founder of the Dublin Writers’ Forum, at the RDS Library on 5th May. My opening words at the launch were read from a piece I was invited to write (for the platform writing.ie) on the inspiration for the two books. The full text is here: Am I a writer? I think so. A poignant evening. So touched by the support there and afterwards. Books available in Hodges Figgis and online.
