Last night in Greece saw the launch of the 'Young Irish Poets' anthology by Vakxikon Publications, a bilingual anthology featuring the literary talents of Annemarie Ní Churreáin, Dylan Brennan, Doireann Ní Ghríofa, Alice Kinsella, Stephen Sexton, Seán Hewitt, Rob Buchanan, Ingy Pops, Elaine Feeney, Jess Traynor and myself.
This is the first time my poems have appeared in translation, which is a real thrill (and a double thrill of still being considered a young Irish poet at 39!).
Many thanks to Ingrid Casey and Manuela Palacios-Gonzalez for making the anthology a reality and bringing it to life, I'm honoured to be included.
You can read the introductory essay to the collection, 'Switching Darkness Off', by Manuela Palacios-Gonzalez.
