"Any direction--as long as it's north..."

I am so pleased to have had work this year in some of my favourite publications. My poetry has appeared in gorseThe Stinging FlyPoetry Ireland Reviewsome mark made, and I had my first publication in the U.S. through Solas Nua and their mini-edition of "The Rising Issue" of The Stinging Fly for Irish Book Day.

Also thrilling is my inclusion in a forum "For a Global Poetics" in the latest issue of ASAP/Journal from John Hopkins University. The forum, edited by Walt Hunter, includes many brilliant poets, including M. NourbeSe Philip. NourbeSe Philip's poetry is central to my studies, so it is so v cool to be featured alongside her!  You can check it out here.

Suzannah Evans wrote a kind and insightful review of my pamphlet I Am Where in the August issue of The North magazine, a wonderful publication produced by The Poetry Business. You can see some of Suzannah's words from her review here, and The North is available to purchase from The Poetry Business website. 

So! For the rest of year I am going to be having the best fun reading my work. Catch me all over the place, at home and abroad, in the coming months:
