Continuing the Poetry Day Ireland celebrations... our special double issue of FourXFour Poetry Journal is now live, with new writing from Lizz Murphy Author, Michael Conaghan, Julieann Campbell, Patrick Taggart, Aine MacAodha, Nathan Elout-Armstrong, Willetta Fleming and Gareth Osborne.
The theme for this year’s Poetry Day Ireland is “poetry connects”. It’s a main ethos of FourXFour, to discover and celebrate strong, original writing within Northern Ireland, and to connect the poets with new and wider audiences. The journal has been doing that for nearly five years now, and it’s a pleasure to bring you once more not four, but this time eight, further poets for you to explore and discover.
Four of our featured poets have published collections previously, while four are emerging names to watch out for. It’s the perfect balance for our double issue, and we wish each of them the best with their writing and careers going forward. Happy reading.
