THE VISUAL TIME TRAVELLER IN THE U.S.
I am presenting The Visual Time Traveller talk in the stunning (19th century) Mystic and Noank Library in Connecticut, US, on 19th Sept at 6pm, my debut lecture in the U.S. My thanks to Kieran Geoghegan and Joanne Murray for their help and support in arranging the invitation. For those attending the lecture there is a special offer for advance orders.
On 7th May this year a jewel landed in my inbox, an email from Eavan Boland accepting my poem, The Last Two Pots of Marmalade for Poetry Ireland Review. The review (and previous issues) can be ordered directly from Poetry Ireland or the current issue is in bookshops throughout Ireland. Other poems published:
Fisherman, Kerala published by Dime Show Review (U.S.)
Untitled published by Crossways Literary Magazine (Ireland)
21st Century Renaissance has signed author, Arnie Yasinski, to publish his debut volume of poetry, Proposition. We will launch late October/early November. Details to be confirmed. A taste of the back cover: “This collection written over 20 years by an American born in 1948, finds him playing pool as a teenager with a wounded veteran in the VA town where he lived, then married at 19, divorced, and living through the inescapable mid-life crisis. Now living in Ireland with his Irish wife, he’s more conscious than ever of the inevitable. Full of longing, quintessentially male, honest, and aware, these poems will bear reading again and again....”
