We are looking forward to the arrival of our first Winter Writing Residency awardee, Emily Cooper, later this month. As I’m sitting in a cafe being bombarded by Christmas music, I suppose we’ll have to admit it is, indeed, winter!
Emily will share her work with us on Thursday, 29th of November at 7pm. She’ll be joined by poet Kerri Sonnenberg, who was in residence with us this summer – thanks to an Arts Council bursary.
If you’ve been to a reading at Greywood before, you’ll know what a nice way it is to spend the evening. It’s cosy in the library, the audience is friendly, and the atmosphere is warm and relaxed. Besides – it’s free, with wine, beer, coffee & tea available for a small donation. No need to book, just join us on the night. How bad!
Emily S Cooper is a poet from the North West of Ireland who studied at Goldsmiths, London and the Seamus Heaney Centre in Belfast. She was shortlisted for the Mairtin Crawford Award in 2017 and has been published in The Irish Times, Banshee, Belleville Park Pages and a number of anthologies.
Kerri Sonnenberg is a Cork-based poet originally from Chicago. She is author of the poetry collection The Mudra (Litmus Press, 2004). Earlier this year she was in residence at Greywood working on a second collection with support from the Irish Arts Council. New work is forthcoming in the anthology A Journey Called Home.
