Personal profile

Research Interests

I'm the author of a book of poems If All the World and Love Were Young to be published by Penguin in August 2019, and the author of a pamphlet of poems, Oils, published by the Emma Press in 2014, which was the Poetry Book Society's Winter Pamphlet Choice of that year.

My work has been published in leading journals in the UK and Ireland such as Granta, Poetry London and Poetry Ireland Review , as well as a number of American publications, including POETRY and The Virginia Quarterly Review. Poems were featured in The Future Always Makes Me So Thirsty: New Poets from the North of Ireland, edited by Sinéad Morrissey and Stephen Connolly. In addition, poems will feature in Switching Off Darkness: Young Irish Poets, an anthology of poems by Irish writers in Greek translation, to be published by Vakxikon Publications in 2019.

I was the winner of the UK National Poetry Competition, and an Eric Gregory Award from the Society of Authors. I've contributed to documentaries for BBC Radio Four, including We Will Arise and Go Now, and Driving Bill Drummond.
