I’m delighted to be reading at this year’s PoetryFest, which takes place between the 2nd and 4th of November at the Irish Arts Centre, New York City. This annual event, currently curated by Nick Laird, has featured some extraordinary poetic talent, from both sides of the Atlantic, over the past decade.
It’s a special thrill to for me be reading with the wonderful Nicole Sealey.
The festival is also graced by readings from Ben Lerner and Vona Groarke,
from Natalie Diaz and Annemarie Ní Churreáin, from Maureen McLane and Michelle O’Sulivan, and from Ciaran Carson and Marie Howe.
Also featuring are the ever-popular ‘Favourite Irish Poems’ and ‘Desert Island Poems’ events.
This is a trip I’m very much looking forward to.
