It is always lovely to have a poem in an anthology. To see a piece of work in the context of others on the same theme. I’ve been lucky enough to have poems in two new anthologies from Dedalus Press. A Different Eden is a gorgeous book, containing Ecopoetry from Ireland and Galicia, edited by Keith Payne, Lorna Shaughnessy and Martin Veiga. It reflects a growing awareness of the fragility of the ecosystems we inhabit and a vision of a better future.
Local Wonders is an anthology of new poems from poets all over Ireland, recording and celebrating precious place and things, with a focus on what we love in these uncertain times.
I have attached a link below if anyone would like to purchase either of these books. I think they would make great Christmas presents – or is it too early to use the C word!
