Grateful for the opportunity to learn from some hella accomplished poets last week.

I'm especially grateful for the wonderful poets I met in the group workshops; their work was brilliant and their insights were concise and invaluable. Next up for me is a novel-writing course with @khardcase

Friday again 😊 which means another Note is up on the website now.


There, you’ll find a writing exercise inspired by the first time you ever ___________________ (the detail of that first whatever is entirely up to you) ☺️.

Enjoy a superb poem by County Down poet, Leontia Flynn.

And there’s a terrific piece of writing from Dark Angel, Lee Ryan, written in response to Roger Robinson’s poem ‘And If I Speak of Paradise’.

Find all the details though the bio links.

Happy weekending, writers.

Dziś w "Portretach przekładu" Jerzy Jarniewicz, poetki irlandzkie i wyjaśnienie, dlaczego tłumacz musi być poliamoryczny.

I doprawdy, po takim wstępie nie wiemy, co jeszcze moglibyśmy dodać. No dobrze, zdradzimy, że w nagraniu audio tłumacz mówi o zróżnicowaniu języka sześciu poetek irlandzkich, wielowiekowej marginalizacji poezji kobiet w Irlandii i przekładzie jako pracy zawsze niedokończonej.

We're going out tonight 💛🍾😷

By #leontiaflynn , who went to our school.

The last featured book of this month is Kate Miller's The Long Beds, a @poetrybooksociety Autumn Recommendation!

🌃🛏

The Long Beds explores the cell-like containment of the small hours when the body has no estate but its bed, while - waking or dreaming - the mind sets out on its travels, often in the realms of an old life, cherished items or relinquished connections.

Central to the poems' imagery is the presence of a bedstead that has survived a bombing raid, protecting only what was bundled underneath it. In painterly language Kate Miller also trains her eye and ear outwards on grand, impersonal scenes: London at dawn, riverbanks and docks, the corridors of a great hospital: to uncover fogged experience and restore colour to memory. Her poems prod us awake at first light and release us into the morning. 🌅

'It is my favourite image here, and as with many of these photographs it has a particular kind of light that I like very much.

It is an ordinary, mid-day, indoors kind of light, which is some photographs gives way to deeper evening light. It evokes not just the drive of what we now call care-giving, but the drift of days in childhood, memorialised in those hazy orange photos from the seventies. The dull, perilous, endless and wide-reaching days, that is, whose concerns are inseparable from those we like to think of as the 'outside world'. '

“Sunlight, yellow, on an upright gable / standing by waste-ground, a bright autumn sky / behind it

and a foreground of low rubble, / transforms place into geometry—” In “Poem in Homage to Built Things in Three Dimensions” from THE RADIO, Leontia Flynn describes built spaces that were once well-structured but are now neglected and fallen to ruin, an image that resonates with the collection’s focus on life amid political and social tensions in Northern Ireland.
You can read the rest of the poem on our blog (link in bio).

It’s happening!

This year’s Poetry Summer School kicks off on Monday with lectures and workshops by Leontia Flynn, Stephen Sexton, Tara McAvoy, Stephen Connolly, plus the winner of this year’s First Collection Poetry Prize. Our students will be guided throughout by Nick Laird, assisted by Padraig Regan. They’ll have 1-2-1s with all our tutors plus Manuela Moser and Dane Holt.
