      Well Gerard Quain, because it was invite only, it was about performance poetry and it was 6 months ago.

      But maybe you are the greatest because of your elusiveness and anonymity. Like all the greats

        Gerard, no worries. Was only joshing you a bit. We were lucky enough to get asked to go over there in April. We are all based in Ireland. If you find yourself in Dublin please stop by our show to check it out. We usually have at least one poet every month performing. Will have a look at your ebook now, cheers

  2. thank you and the best of luck to you and all who promote new writing.
