Distracted by Abstracts

April 3, 2014

heaney conf

Oh law!! – as my grandmother used to say – how I wish I was going to this:

But – as many a grandmother also said – we can’t have everything!  The ‘writer’s budget’ will only stretch so far, and I’ve already applied for a place at the Heaney Centre’s poetry summer school in Belfast.  Fingers crossed, and saving the euros just in case…

‘Seamus Heaney: a Conference and Commemoration’ runs from 10-13 April, and takes place around what would have been the poet’s 75th birthday.

I’ve been taking a look at the abstracts for the conference, and doing a bit of academic/literary drooling.

You can have a look for yourself on the link below:-
