The Salmon Anthology

Following on the heels of my collection Ancestor Worship (Salmon Poetry), I also have a selection of three poems in the new anthology Salmon: A Journey in Poetry 1981-2007. This volume in a way summarizes the 26 years of Salmon Poetry’s existence, collecting the numerous Irish and international poets it has published in that time. Jessie Lendennie is the editor. Including detailed biographical notes for each poet and a complete bibliography of Salmon’s publications, the book is well worth purchasing.

The list of poets featured is: Nadya Aisenberg, Nuala Archer, Leland Bardwell, Marck L. Beggs, Michael S. Begnal, Marvin Bell, Eva Bourke, Ray Bradbury, Rory Brennan, Heather Brett, Patricia Burke Brogan, Simmons B. Buntin, Sam Burnside, Catherine Byron, Louise C. Callaghan, Seamus Cashman, David Cavanagh, Jerah Chadwick, Patrick Chapman, Mary Coll, Roz Cowman, Vicki Crowley, Theodore Deppe, Mary Dorcey, Carol Ann Duffy, Michael Egan, Mícheál Fanning, Gabriel Fitzmaurice, Mélanie Francès, Philip Fried, Erling Friis-Baastad, Paul Genega, Frank Golden, Michael Gorman, Mark Granier, Robert Greacen, Angela Greene, Maurice Harmon, Clarinda Harriss, Anne Le Marquand Hartigan, Michael Heffernan, Kevin Higgins, Michael D.
