Having supporting Drogheda Creative Writers in one of its Garden of Remembrance sessions during the Fleadh Cheoil, poet Phil Lynch, one of the rising voices on the spoken word circuit in Ireland, returns to Drogheda as guest poet at the Drogheda Creative Writers' Open Mic night on Monday 24th September at 7.30pm in the Living Room at Sarsfields, Chord Road.

So look forward to an exciting sampling from his collection ‘In a Changing Light’ published by Salmon Poetry. Phil’s poems have appeared in a range of literary journals and anthologies and featured on radio in the Arena Arts Show, the Poetry Programme. Sunday Miscellany and others.

He is a regular at poetry and spoken word events and festivals in Ireland and has also performed in Belgium, France, the UK and USA. He was a co-founder of Lingo, Ireland’s first spoken word festival, and is a member of Dalkey Writers Workshop. 

First of a series of guest poets/readers planned for this year’s bi-monthly Open Mic evenings, Phil will be followed in November by the fascinating words of Anne Tannam.
