May Festival: Tomorrow's Writers Today

From the first year of my PhD I was involved with the May Festival's program of literary events, starting with the Tomorrow's Writers Today, which is an opportunity for students in the postgraduate CW program to read their writing to an audience. I participated in this event for three years, either as a student or in my role as editor for Causeway/Cabhsair Magazine.
