I am really delighted to have this book of poems coming out with Whitmore Press. Hoard draws its imagery from the bogs of Ireland, and has a beautiful cover featuring one of Bernadette Kiely's Bog Cotton paintings.
Big thanks to Anthony Lynch, Amanda Johnson, Deirdre Carmichael and all -- and in advance to Marion May Campbell for launching Hoard!
You can read a sample poem from the book at Arc Poetry Magazine, featured as part of its collaboration with Cordite...
