Ó Bhéal reviewed by visiting Travel Writer

18 July 2012

‘An American fiction writer faces a crisis of self-doubt upon finding the poetry open mic of his literary-tourism dreams in Cork, Ireland’ – World Literature Today

Visiting writer Eric Bosse, Professor in the Expository Writing Program at the University of Oklahoma, came to Ireland to teach travel writing to students for a semester at UCC.

‘And, as I left the pub and raised my umbrella for the long walk to my apartment in the University College Cork dorms, I vowed to carry the spirit of Ó Bhéal home to Oklahoma’.

Ó Bhéal open-mic on Video

12 December 2011

At Ó Bhéal’s 238th event, after a magnificent reading by poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy and musical performance by John Sampson, all sixty-five minutes of which had to remain live for copyright reasons, we managed to video the poets from the open-mic, which you can enjoy right here.
