Three Verses: Mel McMahon, Colin Dardis & Joan Newmann


Join Irish poet’s Mel McMahon, Colin Dardis and Joan Newmann as they read from their latest works.

Mel McMahon will be reading from his second collection, Beneath Our Feet (Abbey Press). A poetic tribute to Wilfred Owen, one of World War One's greatest poets. The book deals with the last two years of Owen's life and explores his time in France and Craiglockhart.

Colin Dardis will be reading from the x of y (Eyewear Publishing). Navigating an often complex and uneven playing field, the collection strives to find balance from a life constantly fluctuating between profit and loss, exploring questions of existence and identity, asking who we really are, and how we can possibly be.

Joan Newmann will read from Dead End (Summer Palace Press), a rumination on death which is often as playful a collection as it is a dark and hauntingly beautiful one.
