press release - an invitation

please use and abuse this freelly and immediately

Poet from England, Dave Wood begins his travels through Northern Ireland on 24th August. Already from one day's appearance on award winning he has picked up a contact in Kilrea who wants to find out more. Although Dave wasn't planning on going to the area, (he's got a stinker of a schedule) he's trying to work out a way that the two of them can meet up. Check out the itinerary for his location over the fortnight.

He'll be running at least three (arranged) creative writing sessions and will be interviewing people on an as and when basis. If he stops you mid-shop, please give him some of your time.

Meanwhile, if you want to meet up, whether out of curiosity, from a press perspective or want to add their voice to this poetic snowball (!), contact Dave asap. He'll be logging on to his own site and to slugger when he can. davewrite2002@ at

Have patience.
