Irish American Crossroads presents Irish poet, Elaine Feeney, in her West Coast premiere. Feeney is part of a new movement of political poetry in Ireland and has been called “the freshest, most engaging and certainly the most provocative poet to come out of Ireland in the last decade.” (Fionnuala Flanagan)
Feeney was born in Galway and has lived much of her life in Athenry. Feeney has published three collections of poetry: Indiscipline (2007, Maverick Press), Where’s Katie? (2010, Salmon) and The Radio was Gospel (2014, Salmon). Her writing has been published widely in literary magazines, journals and anthologies and has been translated into many languages. Her next collection, Rise, is forthcoming.
