Padraig Regan Reading and Q&A
Join The Muse Writers Center for a virtual reading with Irish writer Padraig Regan, followed by an audience Q&A. This event will be held via Zoom webinar and a recording will be available on the Muse YouTube channel after the event.
Aside from the intelligence and joy of these poems, there is a real mastery of image too – the language sometimes recalling Edmund White at his most luxurious, and the opening of poems such as ‘Aubade’ being simply breath-taking. These are poems that look at the extremities of experience and ground them for the reader.
— Andrew McMillan
