Poet, author, actor and film maker Joe Byrne - appearing at Sarsfield's on March 25th.
Multi award-winning poet, writer, actor and filmmaker Joe Byrne is the star attraction at Drogheda Creative Writers' next open mic on Monday 25th March at Sarsfield’s pub in Chord Road.
All those skills enable him to star in and direct his own poetry videos including last year's winning video poem at the Doolin Literary Festival called "Big Boys Don't Cry" (see below).
Joe is an active member of Dublin's performance poetry scene and 2018's Circle Sessions' Poet of the Year. Social issues such as mental health, homelessness and modern relationships dominate his poems, so we are in a treat as well as a chance to find out what makes Joe tick.
Also reading and performing a range of poems, both humorous and serious, will be members of Drogheda Creative Writers and yourself if you feel like giving it a shot. The session starts at 7.30pm and all are welcome.
