Poem in Infinite Rust – Fall Issue

I’m delighted to have my poem Admission, on leaving the Port of Belfast, 1988 accepted for the Fall issue of Infinite Rust, Texas Southern University’s quarterly journal of Literary and Visual Arts.

The theme of the issue, due online on 28th October, is HOME: perspectives or interpretation relating to ideas such as the meaning of home, immigration, marginalization, nationalism, ownership, comfort, security, displacement, boundaries, and identity.

2 poems in The Open Ear

The Open Ear is the literary magazine for Queen’s University, Belfast, edited by postgraduates at the Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry.

My poetry this year has been encouraged by participating in a reading organised by Women Aloud NI in March. Also by a workshop given by Moyra Donaldson at the Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast. See my blog:

And one of the poems was written as a follow-up to a poem I had published in the Easter 2018 edition of the Bangor Literary Journal.
