THE RISING GENERATION. READING

Jane Clarke is a contributor to “The Rising Generation” a collection of Irish poetry recently produced by Poetry Ireland.
A sign of the vigour of new Irish poetry, Poetry Ireland’s ‘The Rising Generation’ is dedicated entirely to the work of poets who have published their first pamphlets and books in the last five years. We are joined by Poetry Ireland contributor, Jane Clarke.
Jane’s poetry collection, The River, is published by Bloodaxe Books. She won the 2016 Hennessy Literary Award for Poetry. Her other awards include the Listowel Writer’s Week Poetry Collection Prize (2014) and the Trocaire/Poetry Ireland Competition (2014). She holds a BA in English and Philosophy from Trinity College, Dublin and an MPhil in Writing from the University of South Wales.
Jane will be joined by visiting Irish poet, Caroline Bracken, who will select and read her favorite poem in the collection.
