A Bit About Me

So here I am, still doing this blog thingy after discovering it  reaches more people than the telepathy…

I like writing poetry, flash fiction and short stories, but I also have several novels on the go, one of them a long-running joint venture with my daughter (we’ll finish it eventually!)

I am a trained facilitator and run creative writing classes whenever I’m asked, as well as a fortnightly Creative Writing Group in Charlestown, County Mayo.

I’m originally from Elgar country in Worcestershire, England, but have lived in County Roscommon in the west of Ireland for the past 14 years, although you’d never guess from the accent.

Once a month, at the Word Corner Café in the Dock Arts Centre in Carrick on Shannon, I can be heard reading my poetry to anyone who’ll listen.

I can also be seen out and about with the Hermit Collective, a wandering band of artists, writers, musicians and more who do pop up shows in the west of Ireland  – check them/us out The Hermit Collective and please ‘like’ and ‘share’ the  Facebook page: The Hermit Collective Facebook

Here I am, reading some of my poetry on Culture Night 2016 in Ballymote Library (County Sligo) – and it looks like nearly everyone is listening!

I’m a reluctant social media participant (how do people find the time??) but you can DM me on Twitter: @louisegcole and I’m told I  have a Facebook page 🙂
