What do we do when the water rises

I thought I'd read you 'What do we do when the water rises', a poem from my collection, Terms & Conditions, which takes inspiration from the fire ant in times of crisis. #InternationalPoetryCircle

Publication day!

Happy publication day to 'and what if we were all allowed to disappear', my hybrid book of poetry/prose/fiction/non-fiction, with the gold cover! Published today by Guillemot Press, and inspired by particle physics, it asks: ‘What does it mean to be in pieces? What might it mean to be whole?’

And in a lovely coincidence, here I am reading a letter to my younger self, on the same day my 8th book is published! "The biggest thing I've learned: create community. Lift others. You may be lifted as a consequence, but don't make that your plan." You can listen here:

My stories on Stinging Fly Podcast

I was astonished to discover today that the wonderful Irish writer Cathy Sweeney is reading and discussing two of my short stories on the Stinging Fly literary magazine podcast. What an honour. And Cathy has a great conversation with the Stinging Fly's editor about genre boundaries, as well as reading one of her own fabulous stories. You can listen here if you'd like!
