Join us on Zoom for the launch of The Songs I Sing Are Sisters, a poetry collection by Cáit O'Neill McCullagh and Sinéad McClure!

Cáit  O'Neill McCullagh  started writing poetry in December 2020.

She has also had poems commissioned  for North Antrim’s Pub Poetry Network’s ‘This is the World’ exhibition  and Crowvus’ Scottish Book Week ‘Poetry in the High Street ‘ exhibition,  both in 2021.

She has work forthcoming  in Dreich’s ‘The Edge of All Storms’ Anthology, the ‘Not the time to be  silent’ Anthology, and in the inaugural issues of Howl and The Storms.  She is committed to nurturing fellow writers as a co-director of The Wee  Gaitherin ‘Scotland’s most democratic poetry Festival’, and as a  trustee of Moniack Mhor Creative Writing Centre. Recently she has  embarked on a collaboration with ceramic artist Rachel Ho, exploring  fresh readings of her poem ‘Birth’, and is working on a new small  collection invited for consideration by a small independent publisher.  See https://www.highlandlit.com/cait-oneill-mccullagh
