I’m thrilled that my poem ‘Things No Longer There’ features in the current edition of the Poetry Magazine Podcast. There’s a reading of the poem (with help from some ‘special effects’ editing by Curtis Fox) a few snippets of interview with myself and a discussion by the magazine’s editors.
Also featured is ‘Bespoke’ by Michelle O’Sullivan, that wonderful poet whose second collection, The Flower and the Frozen Sea, has been named a PBS recommendation and ‘Paris Syndrome’ by Victoria Kenneffick, whose excellent pamphlet White Whale has proved a magnet for awards and acclaim. The podcast concludes with a discussion by guest-editor Patrick Cotter of recent trends in the Irish poetry scene. My sincere thanks to all concerned for making this happen, and for subjecting my work to such flattering and fruitful scrutiny!
