National Poetry Competition 2014, UK, The Poetry Society – Longlisted

Two of my poems, to be published in the coming months, have been longlisted for The Poetry Society‘s National Poetry Competition in the UK. I consider it humbling, and very encouraging, to have twice made the final 140 from an entry of over 13,000. England, you’ve been very kind to me recently.


I really consider it a privilege to be the featured reader for the latest Stanzas gathering in Limerick. It’s is not just a platform for emerging writers, but a very defined movement of bold and exacting talents, one which I have a great deal of respect for. The reading takes place in Cafe Noir, Robert Street, this Friday, at 7pm.
