Words Lightly Spoken (Ep. 23)

For episode 23 of Words Lightly Spoken, a weekly podcast of poetry from Ireland, I read section 5 from my book this is no longer entertainment.

This section of the book is a borderless prose piece composed of fragments from 'below-the-line' commentary on an online article from 2016 that featured testimonies by young mother refugees to the US and Europe.



Each episode of Words Lightly Spoken features one poem read by the poet, with a short introduction. Poets previously featured in the series include Doireann Ní Ghríofa, Ailbhe Darcy, Paul Perry, Paul Muldoon and Anamaría Crowe Serrano.

Words Lightly Spoken is produced by Claire Cunningham and funded by the Arts Council of Ireland. The podcast series is available on the Poetry Ireland website, on i-tunes, Spotify, and other platforms.
