I have a poem in the new issue of Riddle Fence, a literary journal that in recent years has really made its mark on the Canadian scene. My poem, one of several I’ve written entitled ‘What normal people do’, features in a special section on contemporary Irish poetry, of which I’m delighted to be a part.
Riddle Fence is edited out of St John’s, Newfoundland, by some seriously ambitious and talented people. Seeing this issue brings back memories of my own trip to that craggy beautiful city, and across the entire island, during the March Hare Festival of 2009. March Hare was probably the most fun and most welcoming of all the festivals in which I’ve participated. It was without doubt the drunkest.
