Over The Edge was pleased to be notified that our Arts Council grant for 2008 is up on what we received in 2007. We have an exciting programme lined up for 2008 which includes our fifth anniversary reading in January at which Pat Boran will be one of the Featured Readers. Other readers lined up so far for 2008 include Dennis O’Driscoll, Colette Bryce, Roddy Lumsden, Rita Ann Higgins & Michael S. Begnal.
We are also delighted that North Beach Poetry Nights, organised by John Walsh, with whom we always work very closely, will also for the first time receive Arts Council funding in 2008 under the Small Festival's Scheme.
The final 'Over The Edge: Open Reading' of 2007 takes place on Thursday, December 13th, 6.30-8pm, in Galway City Library. The Featured Readers are Anne-Marie Fyfe, Aidan Hynes & Val Nolan. As usual there will be an open-mic afterwards. All welcome.
The 2007 North Beach Nights Poetry Grand Slam takes place on Saturday December 22nd, 9pm in Richardson's, Eyre Square.
