New poem ‘You Are To Me’ in The North, The Irish Issue and on Lyric FM, the Poetry File
Hot off the presses and just launched in London is a cracking edition of North (Eds Jane Clarke & Nessa O’Mahony) from Poetry Business including an intriguing conversation between two of my favourite poets, Sinead Morrissey and Paula Cunningham. Some of the great, late Matthew Sweeny’s last poems are there as well as a clatter of other new poems and reviews. There & in great company is ‘You Are To Me’ written for Ronan, my then boyfriend and now husband (!) and read at our wedding. http://www.poetrybusiness.co.uk/shop/993/north-61 and buy at Books Upstairs and other bookshops.
I also just recorded ‘You Are To Me’ the poem for Poetry File on Lyric FM with producer Eithne Hand. Recording that day too were David Butler, Amanda Bell and Stephen Sexton Smith – all coming to a radio near you soon on https://www.rte.ie/lyricfm/evelyn-grants-weekend-drive/category/poetry-file/
Thanks Eithne – a great use of an otherwise empty studio slot.
