Poetry Reading with Seán Hewitt and Paul Maddern

  • Quaker Meeting House 7 Park St, Hillsborough BT26 6AL (map)


Despite the thorns of love and pain, the poems in Seán Hewitt’s debut pamphlet Lantern are unafraid to dive into the wilderness. Paul Maddern’s latest publication The Tipping Line, is part auto-biography, part exploration of artistic practice, and part historical record, moving between the beaches of Donegal and Bermuda, and through the cities of London, Leeds, and New York.

Seán Hewitt is a fiction reviewer for the Irish Times and a Leverhulme Research Fellow at Trinity College, Dublin. Paul Maddern was born in Bermuda and lived in Canada, the USA, and England before moving to Co. Down in 2000. He is the proprietor of The River Mill writers retreat in Co Down.
