Reading Homeostasis at Ariadne’s Thread Issue 4 launch
Armando Halpern, author and editor of Ariadne’s Thread literary journal, hosted the launch of Issue 4 at The Old Ship Inn last night. Contributors from the current issue and past journals read their poetry and prose. The venue gave a nice, relaxed atmosphere for the readings and the pub staff were happy to turn the music off. My cross-genre piece, Homeostasis, bridged the gap between poetry and prose. I’m more accustomed to reading my poetry at events so it was new (but fun!) territory for me to be reading something a bit different. Check out Joseph Robert‘s interesting camera work, that I think adds an eerie dimension to my work!
Leilanie Stewart is an author and poet from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She has written four novels, including award-winning ghost horror, The Blue Man, as well as three poetry collections. Her writing confronts the nature of self; her novels feature main characters on a dark psychological journey who have a crisis of identity and create a new sense of being. She began writing for publication while working as an English teacher in Japan, a career pathway that has influenced themes in her writing. Her former career as an Archaeologist has also inspired her writing and she has incorporated elements of archaeology and mythology into both her fiction and poetry.
In addition to promoting her own work, Leilanie runs Bindweed Magazine, a creative writing literary journal with her writer husband, Joseph Robert. Aside from publishing pursuits, Leilanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their lively literary lad, a voracious reader of sea monster books.
