BOYNE BERRIES 7

Boyne Berries 7 was launched last week in Trim. There was a big turn out and twenty contributers read, I was delighted to have my prose piece, Lady Slice published in this edition of the magazine. I was really struck by Aideen Henry's prose piece and how she read. There's a lot of variety in this issue, extracts can be read at http://www.boynewriters.com/mag

It was a great night indeed. I enjoyed listening to the readings particularly 'School Run 'by Aideen Henry, 'Airborne' by Paddy Smith and 'Lady Slice'. I loved the image of the brass bell in 'Lady Slice' and the crushing of the pale blue eggs...! It was a great night !!!
