One Last Gasp: Lita Doolan seeking poems, short stories and monologues for online reading

Poems, short stories and monologues that show something new emerging either from a rediscovery made after returning to a familiar place or from an embarrassing moment that became cathartic. This moment can only be experienced now, like One Last Gasp.

Recent projects from this team include well-reviewed curated work at Dublin Pride, Burning Man 2020 and Glasgow Literary Festival where the performances was hailed ‘a real highlight’.
