Salmon Poetry Invites You To The Galway Launch of The God Thing by Susan Millar DuMars

Salmon Poetry invites you
to the Galway launch of The God Thing,
the new collection of poetry by Susan Millar DuMars.


The book will be launched by Reverend Canon Maureen Ryan
at Galway City Museum
on Saturday, March 23rd at 2pm.
 Everyone is welcome.

Maureen Ryan has lived most of her adult life in Galway. She has published two novels and over 400 academic papers, essays, sermons, meditations and reflections. She is a psychologist, a Priest in the Church of Ireland and a Canon in the National Cathedral of St. Patrick’s, Dublin.

In The God Thing, Susan Millar DuMars writes with compassion and clarity about the terminal illness and death of a family member, and her own resulting struggle to keep faith and love alive within herself. The poems question and rage, and find unexpected moments of humour and buoyancy. DuMars looks for God in the stories of the Bible’s women; in the transcendent paintings of Matisse and the soulful images of Hopper; in the transience of cities, the memory of mountains, the freedom of water and the spilt sugar stars in the sky. An excavation of grief which unearths, if not the Divine, then hope – as necessary and fragile as our next breath.

Ruth Quinlan is from Tralee, County Kerry. She worked in IT before taking a break in 2011 to try and scratch the writing itch and graduated from the MA in Writing at NUI Galway in 2012.

Her work has been published by Emerge Literary Journal, Thresholds, SIN, Scissors and Spackle and she is longlisted for the current Irish Independent Hennessy New Irish Writing awards. She recently contributed towards two group anthologies, Abandoned Darlings (fiction) and Wayword Tuesdays (poetry). You can find her blogging occasionally at http://ruthquinlan.wordpress.com.
Despite a lengthy career in the logical world of information technology, Dawn Wisniewski has carved a tunnel into the creative side of her brain, allowing her to formulate everything from poetry to fantasy worlds, and even a little artistry on the side. With the help of Kevin Higgins’ poetry workshops, she has gained not only confidence in her poetic ventures but better skills to craft her prose. Also aided by Susan Millar-Dumars’ classes, Dawn has developed a portfolio of short stories and enhancements to the series of fantasy novels she has written. With the first of the series of novels finally ready for submission, Dawn is actively seeking an agent or publisher. Her blog is http://www.musingsbymd.com

An extract from her second novel Beautiful Pictures of the Lost Homeland appeared last year in Literary Imagination (Oxford University Press). In September 2012, Carpet Theatre produced The Trick and Burning Love, two of her adaptations of plays from the classic if schlocky Grand Guignol Theatre of Horror! In 2012 she appeared as the female lead in TG4 docudrama The Enigma of Frank Ryan, which has shown at film festivals internationally. Mia was writer-in-residence at IADT/dlr Arts Office in 2009-2010.

'In Ashes' Having the Conversation About Faith with poet Susan Lindsay

In Ashes
Having the Conversation –
About Faith

Starting, with Susan Lindsay
February 25th, 2013 Cost: € 55

The Harbour Hotel for
Five Monday evenings before Easter.

Faith, by definition, includes doubt. What do you put your faith in now?

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

Using poetry as a starting point, discuss questions of faith and disbelief with an experienced facilitator and former psychotherapist.

Susan Lindsay’s first book of poetry, Whispering the Secrets (Doire Press) was published in 2011. Her book The Love Crucible (Marino 1995) discusses life as a potential journey of transformation from the perspective of humanistic and transpersonal psychology.

Prayer is a poem by self declared atheist and poet laureate of the United Kingdom, Carol Ann Duffy in Theo Dorgan’s anthology of poetry: The Book of Uncommon Prayer (Penguin Ireland, 2007). Poets have expressed faith and darkness in lyrical and all manner of ways over the centuries. Their writings enable us a neutral space, in terms of religion, to open a conversation in a spirit of free enquiry.

You don’t need to know anything about poetry to join in this Socratic conversation and can be of any, or no, religion.

TO BOOK (or enquire about post Easter courses in Creative Living)


Telephone Susan Lindsay at 091-776881. Mob. 086/1671524.
