all codes lead to roam

just ran across this great resource. i'm probably just not a cool kid and my bloggerissimo is already hip to this yo. but down deep in the maine woods at the one and only FISHOUSE you can listen to poets with two or fewer books reading their poems and talking about writing poetry. i knew there was some reason i was up again in the middle of the night. now i'm heading over there. and sure pass your cup for a sup o' moonshine.

Hi Heidi!

I just found your blog by linking through Kirsten's--what a treat. Hope all is well with you and John--Athens misses you (assuming I can speak for the whole town. I can, right?) I hope it's OK if I link your blog from mine (a pretty new project--I'm still trying to work out the best ways to make it useful.)

-Sian.

Hi there,
I know this is an unusual way for a potential student to get in touch with a tutor, but from one south-florida girl to another, I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm new to Dublin fresh over from the states and would love to take your intermediate poetry course- but the centre informs me your class is full. I see that you do have room in your beginner's course, but as I have a BA in poetry I'm not sure this would be right for me. If you have any advice- please send me an email at: jessicaacolley@gmail.com
All the best,
Jessica

I'm Kate Cone from Maine and was encouraged to contact you by my online friend from Dublin Marie-Therese who just finished your 3 day writing class in Dingle. I am in Howth right now for a writing program run by faculty who also teach in my former MFA in Creative writing program in Maine. This is my first trip to Ireland. Went to Dublin tonight and had culture shock....quiet little seaside Howth, much like my little lobstering village Harpswell in Maine to the BIG CITY. So I'm happily back in my B & B room and supposed to be reading stuff for my morning workshop. But I thought I'd make contact with you. Mostly I'd like to know about writing and perhaps living in Ireland for awhile. I need to work to have an income, but maybe there would be some type of teaching I could do in writing, since I have my terminal degree now. But I'd also like to be here since my novel in progress is about Irish characters who come to the states to work in a brewpub. What do you think?
