Well, we've just about recovered from the week that was The John Hewitt Society International Summer School. We had a blast on Thursday night, downstairs in The Market Place Theatre & Arts Centre, with our late night Purely Poetry open mic session, our first time bringing it to Armagh.
We had to battle with a late start (it's tough to hurry the legendary Horslips off stage) and a packed bar, but our readers did a wonderful job in sharing their words and grabbing the chance to be a part of the week.
We extend our gratitude and accolades to:
Kate Ennals, Pepe Dorton Hamill, Vincent Hurson, Allie Vigrincic, James Gallagher, Laura Cameron, Sarah R'dek, Chris Warman, Maura Johnston, Rosie Johnston, Jeffrey Bizmyer, Lara Sunday, Bryonna Edwards, Pete Brown, Jenny Cleland, Tom French, Jessica Smith, David Braziel and Kate Brown.
Thanks for making our late night session a success, we hope to be back in Armagh next year for more of the same! (Thanks to Stephen Gordon from JHS for the photos.)
