Islands Edge Poetry ANNEMARIE NÍ CHURREÁIN // August 2018

Islands Edge Poetry ANNEMARIE NÍ CHURREÁIN // August 2018 | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
Ní Churreáin is a poet from Northwest Donegal. Her debut collection Bloodroot (Doire Press, 2017) was shortlisted for the Shine Strong Award for best first collection in Ireland and for the 2018 Julie Suk Award in the U.S.A. She is the author of a suite of poems about Dublin titled Town (The Salvage Press, 2018). In 2016 Ní Churreáin was the recipient of a Next Generation Artist Award, presented by President Michael D. Higgins on behalf of the Arts Council. She was the 2017-18 Kerry Writer In Residence and the recipient of the inaugural 2018-19 John Broderick Residency Award from the Westmeath Arts Office. Ní Churreáin has been awarded literary fellowships from Akademie Schloss Solitude, Jack Kerouac House Orlando, and Hawthornden Castle Scotland. Her poetry is taught as part of the Writing Program at Florida Gulf Coast University. The Yale Review surmised that “Ní Churreáin often captures a whole world of cultural and historical implications in a single, simple, but metaphorically rich image.” The Los Angeles Review of Books stated: “That Ní Churreáin can condense the prototypical life of a young Irish woman into half a page while sustaining the poem’s impact is testament to her ability as a storyteller, the vividness of her language, and the universality of the portraits she is painting....” Ní Churreáin lives in Dublin. She is a member of the Arts Council Writers in Prisons Scheme. In 2018-19 she is composing a libretto for an upcoming opera production. Her second poetry collection is forthcoming.
