Sparks of the Everyday—Poetry Ireland launches the best of Ireland’s emerging poets for 2022
Sparks of the Everyday: Poetry Ireland Introductions 2022 is an anthology featuring the very best of Ireland’s emerging poets for 2022.
The anthology was curated by Anthony Anaxagorou, award-winning poet and essayist, along with renowned Irish-language poet Aifric Mac Aodha.
The anthology features two poems accompanied by a prose piece on poetry, life, or on the intermingling of the two.
