The Bogman’s Cannon

DOUBLE SHOT @ Books Upstairs

A grassroots poetry initiative of The Bogman’s Cannon, Jessica Traynor and Philip Coleman

Double Shot is a series of poetry readings at the new Books Upstairs Premises on D’Olier Street, which seeks to pair an emerging poet with a more established peer and to provide reading opportunities for poets who don’t often get to read in Dublin. We charge a minimal entry fee of €5 to cover overheads and writer travel costs.

We invite all grassroots poetry supporters in the Dublin to attend. Double Shot is completely independent and run by volunteers. We thank our partners in Books Upstairs, Ireland’s No 1 Poetry Book stockists for supporting us.


Our line-up for the pilot reading is as follows:


Jessica Traynor and Graham Allen
