In June, I was lucky enough to be invited to read at the launch of the River Mill Writers’ Retreat at the Crescent Arts Centre in Belfast. This was the second time I had read at the Crescent Arts Centre, and it was lovely to be back there, as everyone was very encouraging and enthusiastic about my work.
I also spent five days at the River Mill, which is a beautiful and tranquil place to work, with excellent meals provided. I highly recommend it.
After a long hot summer, I took part in the Bray Literary Festival, where I read at the Harbour Bar. Tanya Farrelly has done an amazing job putting together this festival, which is now in its second year.
