Anna Jordan is a local writer, playwright, modworfest and modwords founder, Waterford walls flirter, writing facilitator, publicans daughter, mother and so on.
Staging four full pieces (most recent being the successful and controversial 'The January Show') and a million other shorts, spoken word pieces, etc. Anna, decided to broaden the writers scene in Waterford by creating #modpoets in early 2016. This was a basic open mic, in changeable venues, throughout the city, orientated toward all forms of writers. First timers and old hands. A year and a bit later #modpoets had developed into a full on festival #modwordsfest. A two day city wide festival, filled with original plays, spoken word, music, film, dancing, art, book swops/sales, secret show etc.
This is Anna's second year involved in The Lit.
