I’m delighted to have a poem highly commended in the inaugural Liverpool Poetry Prize judged by the brilliant Roger McGough, and I’m looking forward to the reading in Liverpool in June.
I’m also absolutely thrilled for a poet I mentor, Cian Ferriter, who has just won the Munster Fool for Poetry chapbook competition. His pamphlet Earth’s Dark Chute will launch in May at Cork Poetry Festival. I can’t recommend Cian’s work enough. This is much deserved!
