Come and celebrate the launch of two new tall-lighthouse pamphlets, A Fictional Dress by Ailbhe Darcy and The Stream by Simon Pomery with readings from the collections.

The double launch kicks off on Tuesday the 5th of January at 7pm, at the Wheatsheaf pub, 25 Rathbone Place (just off Oxford St) in London.

Ailbhe Darcy has published poetry in Ireland, Britain and the US, and is the co-editor of Moloch. A Fictional Dress is her first solo publication and her first full collection is forthcoming from Bloodaxe in 2010.

Simon Pomery was born in Galway, Ireland, and grew up in the Peak District, Derbyshire. He studied English at the University of Leeds and Pembroke College, Cambridge. The Stream is his first pamphlet and is the latest in the tall-lighthouse pilot series, edited by Roddy Lumsden.
