It’s been out a few weeks, but I’m still on cloud 9 about this one…
One of the top literary magazines in Ireland, The Stinging Fly, has included some of my poetry in their Fear & Fantasy issue. Mia Gallagher acted as the guest editor for the issue. And you can read her thoughts on the process in her interview with The Irish Times.
You can buy the issue online via The Stinging Fly website, or in some good bookshops. It’s also such an added bonus that I’m in something that can be bought in some accessible ways. I recently had some exciting news in that two of my poems have been reserved for an anthology that will be stocked in Waterstones. When I discovered this, the sound I made can only be described as a squeal. I’m not proud of it, but I may have lost my composure.
But isn’t that what life’s about, sometimes?
