Remember I told you all that the basement club were launching a creative writing book and I had 3 poems in it and was on the editorial committee for the book? Well I went to the final committee meeting this morning before the launch of our creative writing booklet which is this Thursday evening. The book is complete and looks amazing! There is poems and short stories and art in it. It really looks spectacular! If anyone is in the cork city region and wants to come to the launch its in our local city library starting at 6 Pm on Thursday evening. This post is going to a few places my blog and some groups I am a part of so I know not all of you are near where I live. At the launch we are going to have members of the basement club reading their work, I will be reading a poem that I wrote when I was 18 to my then psychiatrist who I didnt have a very good connection with at the time. There will be some speeches and the executive director of shine will be there and will give a speech about the basement club and recovery and creative writing as a part of recovery. There will be food and music and it is sure to be a fantastic night. The staff in the basement club have sent invitations out to a lot of organisations and mental health related groups so there should be a good crowd there. My mom is going and so is my sister and my two aunts. I am just so happy that the book came together so well. It looks really good and I am very proud of myself and proud of being part of the basement club and part of this venture.
