New Anthology from Fermanagh Writers

It has been a busy year for Fermanagh Writers, culminating in the launch of our new anthology Remembering and Forgetting during the FLive Festival, in which members also read their favourite poems as part of the Dawn to Dusk poetry readings, performed their own work on the Lovely Leitrim boatel and competed in the All Ireland Poetry Slam Final.

The anthology includes 64 poems and stories (and a couple of essays) from many regular Corncrake contributors well as some new faces. Copies are on sale in Enniskillen at Collage Collective in the Buttermarket and at The Happiness Trap in Belmore Street, or at the Kissin’ Crust in Lisnakea, or through members of Fermanagh Writers.

For mail, overseas or online orders, please email Corncrake.

Some members have recently released their own books: memoirs by Tony Brady and Elizabeth McCluskey, and Dianne Ascroft has published the most recent book in her The Yankee Years series. Kate O’Shea has just launched her first poetry book The Human Condition, and others are currently actively working on their own collections.

Fermanagh Writers meet weekly in Blakes of the Hollow, Church Street, Enniskillen at 7.30 on Tuesday evenings. New members are always welcome.

Corncrake will return at the start of the New Year and hopefully appear at regular quarterly intervals thereafter.
