I am pleased to have a piece of mine, Final Email from P Cranley, published in the new, Irish-literature issue of the Portland-based, online magazine, Penduline. The issue is curated by the ferociously energetic writer and editor Dave Lordan, and is crammed with work from a host of convention-molesting writers and poets.
I am also pleased to find that the ‘Ireland Unread‘ section, which asks seven writers to name the Irish writer, living or dead, who they consider to be most unjustly neglected, includes a piece (by my one-time mentor, Thomas Duddy) on the one-man avant garde, Killian Turner, about whom I recently wrote an essay in The Moth.
Penduline 9 features artwork by Conor Walton and Anthony Wigglesworth, and new writing by Kevin Doyle, William Wall, Dimitra Xidous, Lissa Kiernan, Kit Fryatt, John Kearns, Sudeep Sen, Claire-Louise Bennett, Abby Oliveira, Susan Millar DuMars, Kevin Higgins, Graham Allen, Christodoulos Makris, Paula Cunningham, Naomi Richards, Liam Cagney, Tara White, Philip Coleman, Oisín Fagan, Sarah Clancy, Cal Doyle, Anamaría Crowe Serrano, Kimberly Campanello, Leona Lee Cully, and new interviews with Celeste Augé and Dave Lordan, as well as with Featured Writer Karl Parkinson. And that’s not all: Kalle Ryan and Enda Roche of The Brownbread Mixtape in Dublin have also created a special Penduline showcase tape of Irish performance poetry.
