In 2016, I was commissioned by the Salvage Press to write a series of poems in response to Jonathan Swift’s A Modest Proposal and by the Irish Writers Centre and the Arts Council to write a poem on Dr. Kathleen Lynn for the Easter Rising commemorations. You can watch a video of the poem here.

My poetry has been translated into Czech, Hungarian, Irish, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish and was projected in Krakow, Prague and Dunedin in 2014/5 as part of the Unesco City of Literature Programme. (from Jessica’s site)
