I’ve Been Babbling Too

Babble Journal coverThe first Babble Literary Festival kicked off in Cavan Town on the weekend of August 16-18. It was a joint effort between Cavan Writers Forum and Fermanagh Writers. Events included a poetry slam contest, writing workshops, poetry readings and musical entertainment. The festival committee compiled a journal of works by members of both groups – the Babble Journal 2013 – and it was launched by Carlo Gebler on the Sunday evening. The theme of the festival was Borders since the two groups reach out to each other across the Cavan-Fermanagh/Eire-Northern Ireland border and I’m pleased to have one of my poems, Barbed Boundary, included in the journal.

For more detailed accounts of the Festival weekend read posts by Fermanagh Writers’ members on the FW blog.
