    Great amazing issues here. I am very satisfied to see your post. Thanks so much and i am taking a look ahead to contact you. Will you kindly drop me a mail?

      What is the topic you would like to discuss? Having Chris Murray as a reading is either poetry related to conflicts, or poetry in general, or Irish contribution to poetry. Chris Murray has recently been acknowledged for her “Lament”. You can read info about that going to Get Involved.

      Thank you for your interest! I appreciate that.

  • C. Murray says:

    The Lament was performed at Smock Alley Theatre, Dublin,

    Thanks so much for your continued interest and support. The story of the lament is of three women searching for their infants, the women are also lost(or dead) but they do not realise it. Their voices intertwine and pick up the threads of each other’s voice. I have not published the entire piece yet, but it was great to see it performed !

    best Wishes,

      Bravo, Chris!

      Anyway, when forwarding all the texts to the publisher after the Anthology was fully compiled a few days ago, I also introduced the info about the Lament in your dossier :) And, yesterday, when Lucina and Paul Finegan advised they would have the news about the Anthology on PEN International website and bulletin, I referred in the short notice to them that plus all other pieces of creative work a Lament for three voices is available.

      Coming very soon to you and all other contributors to have a say for the sample of the Cover.

      Kind regards,

    You could definitely see your enthusiasm in the
    work you write. The world hopes for even more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid
    to say how they believe. Always go after your heart.
