Poet Stephen James Smith

Acclaimed Writer, Poet and Performer Stephen James Smith will drop into The Spirit Store in Dundalk this Sunday, November 11 as part of his nationwide tour to promote his debut book of poetry entitled 'Fear Not'. 

The release of this highly anticipated collection of Stephen's Poetic works saw Stephen take to the road for a subsequent 14 date live 'My Ireland' tour with special guest Enda Reilly. The tour kicked off at the Watergate Theatre, Kilkenny November 7th and wrapping up with a hometown event at Dublin's Button Factory on November 24th.

Stephen says: "As a dyslexic my confidence has been impacted when it came to writing this book. People tend to know me as a "performance poet", I'm not really a fan of that term, it sets up a binary. It is the oral side of poetry that drew me in. However, now I'm just too brazen to care what box people want to put me in anymore, time to send it out to the world and see what folks make of them on the page."
