May Over The Edge: Open Reading with Kelley Amrein, Francis Edwards, & Aaron Skehan

The May ‘Over The Edge: Open Reading’ takes place on Zoom on Thursday, May 27th  at the usual Over The Edge time 6.30-8.00pm (local Galway time). The Featured Readers are Aaron Skehan, Francis Edwards, & KD Pryor (Kelley Amrein). There will, as always at Over The Edge: Open Readings, be an open-mic after the Featured Readers have finished. New readers are always especially welcome at the open-mic. Anyone interested in taking part in the open-mic should text Kevin Higgins on 087-6431748 or email between 6pm and 6.30pm on the evening of the reading. The MC for the evening will be Susan Millar DuMars.

Aaron Skehan is a 24-year-old student from Waterford, currently studying marine biology in GMIT. He started writing short stories three years ago when he signed up to the creative writing classes in Galway Technical Institute. He mainly writes fiction about student life in Ireland.  He recently had his first published short story in ROPES magazine. 

KD Pryor (Kelley Amrein) is a writer and world traveller who loves to add elements of her travels into her books. She loves all things mysterious, and ghosts, mythology, and supernatural elements often find their way into her stories. Some of her favourite things include her family, her cats, a walk in the sun along a quiet country road, a stroll in Galway, Ireland where she always finds the best coffee, great books, a cuddly pair of slippers, and warm wool sweaters. Kelley and her husband currently live in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Find her at:

Francis Xavier Edwards was born in La Ciudad de Nuestra Senora, Reina del Cielo y Los Angeles, commonly known as Los Angeles. He came to the world in the middle of the month, in the middle of the year, in the middle of the last century into a large Irish-Catholic family. At a young age he left home to return to Ireland. 47 years and 25 countries later he finally arrived in 2017. Along the way he encountered poetry and music of many cultures and writers. Musician, traveler, writer, gardener, and observer of the world, he now lives in Galway where one of his many pursuits is writing poetry.
