North Beach Poetry Nights with Salmon poet Colm Keegan
Colm Keegan lives in Clondalkin, Dublin. Since 2005, he has four times been shortlisted for the Hennessey new Irish Writing Award, for bot poetry and fiction. He was shortlisted for the International Seán O Faoláin Short Story Competition in 2008 and won the All Ireland Poetry Slam in 2010.
In 2011, he was nominated for the Dublin Fringe’s ‘Little Gem’ Award for the play he co-wrote with Stephen James Smith and Kalle Ryan – Three Men Talking About Things They Kinda Know About – which had a sold out run at Dublin Fringe Festival’s TurnAroundSeason, and will be touring in Summer 2012.
He regularly reviews for and contributes material to RTÉ Radio One’s Arena. He co-runs the monthly arts event ‘Nighthawks at the Cobalt’ and is co-founder and facilitator of Inklinks, a young writers’ club in Clondalkin. He also teaches creative writing in secondary schools across Ireland.
Poets wishing to enter the Slam on the night need 2 max. three minutes poems.
The prize for the winner is a bottle of wine and entry to the North Beach Grand Slam in December.
