Featured Writer in Icarus Magazine (Vol 67, No. 1)

I'm very happy to have new work, as Featured Writer, in the latest issue (Vol 67, No. 1) of Icarus Magazine.

Icarus is a student magazine based at Trinity College Dublin. It is Ireland's longest running literary journal, still a print publication but with extended online versions of each issue. Founded in 1950 by Alec Reid, it has appeared three times a year since and publishes writing mainly by students, staff and alumni of the University. Former Icarus editors include Iain Sinclair, Maurice Scully, Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, David Wheatley, Selina Guinness and Sue Rainsford, while some notable former contributors are Seamus Heaney, Louis MacNeice, Eavan Boland, Sinéad Morrissey, Justin Quinn, Thom Gunn, Colm Tóibín, Vona Groarke, Desmond Hogan and Kevin Barry.

My contribution 'Five Poems' consists of five extracts from my ongoing book-length work concerned with among other things the concept of reading as a creative process.

My thanks to current editors Will Fleming and Leo Dunsker for their interest in my work.
