Spoke #7 with Colm Keegan 17-8-2012 Print E-mail
Spoke is the open mic night at the Irish Writers’ Centre, taking place on the third Friday of every month. Writers, spoken word artists and musicians are all welcome to perform. Doors at 7.30pm. Free admission. If you’d like to perform, please be prompt, we’ll be signing people up from the time the doors open. You can’t sign up by email, you’ve got to be there. The earlier spots fill first. Every spoke will feature a guest performer and this month it’s Colm Keegan. Colm Keegan’s first book ‘Don’t Go There’ was published earlier this year by Salmon. He has read and performed his poetry at various festivals, including the Flat Lakes Festival, Electric Picnic and the Festival of World Cultures. He was the All Ireland Slam Poetry Champion in 2010. In 2008 he was shortlisted for the International Seán Ó Faoláin Short Story Competition. In 2011 he was nominated for the Absolut Fringe’s ‘Little Gem’ Award for the play ‘Three Men Talking About Things They Kinda Know About’ (co-written with Kalle Ryan and Stephen James Smith) which is touring 2012/2013. He is a poetry/arts reviewer and contributing poet for RTE Radio One’s nightly arts show ARENA and co-founder of ‘Nighthawks at the Cobalt’.
