BORDER CROSSINGS #2 - THREE POETS FROM BELFAST: STEPHEN CONNOLLY, MANUELA MOSER & STEPHEN SEXTON

Three of the brightest lights from the poetry world in Northern Ireland bring their highly-regarded works south for an afternoon recital in Farmleigh’s Old Kitchen.

Stephen Sexton lives in Belfast where he teaches at the Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry. Poems have been published in POETRY, Granta, The Virginia Quarterly Review and Poetry Ireland Review. His pamphlet, ‘Oils’, published by The Emma Press in 2014, was the Poetry Book Society’s Winter Pamphlet Choice. He was the winner of the 2016 National Poetry Competition and the recipient of an ACES award from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. He received an Eric Gregory Award in 2018. ‘If All the World and Love Were Young’ will be published by Penguin in 2019.

Manuela Moser is currently working on a PhD at Queen's University, Belfast. Her poems have appeared in Poetry Ireland Review, Copper Nickel, The Tangerine and Hotel. She runs The Lifeboat press and reading series.

Stephen Connolly's poetry has appeared in Poetry Ireland Review, Poetry (Chicago), The Tangerine and The Virginia Quarterly Review. He co-edited ‘The Future Always Makes Me So Thirsty: New Poets from the North of Ireland’ with Sinéad Morrissey. He runs The Lifeboat press and reading series.
