Poetry International

Delighted to have some poems from Zinger online at the Poetry International web site. I’ve been a fan of this site for a long time; it’s a brilliant resource for checking out new work from poets all over the world – in the original languages and in translation. In fact, Poetry International is probably the closest thing we have in Europe at the moment to the Chicago based Poetry Foundation’s wonderfully expansive web site.

Anyway, there are four new poets from Ireland up on the site this week: Macdara Woods, Sinead Morrissey, Aifric Mac Aodha & me. Thanks to Mike Begnal for his introductory piece and to the editor of the Irish pages, Billy Ramsell, for putting it together.


Zinger News

Zinger (Salmon Poetry, 2013)It’s been a good start to 2014 with the first review of the year coming in the shape of a nice piece by poet & critic Kevin Higgins in the Galway Advertiser last Thursday.

‘Alan Jude Moore’s poems are not concerned with being fashionable and, yet, are strikingly modern. Zinger is a ground breaking work of singular quality.’

(The full article, including reviews of new collections from Elaine Feeney and Fred Johnston, can be read online here).


And in other Zinger related news, I have a couple of readings coming up: The Monday Echo at The International Bar, Wicklow St., Dublin 2 on 20th January & Over the Edge in Galway on 14th March.


In case you’re wondering how to get your hands on a copy, Zinger is available direct from the Salmon Poetry online bookstore or you can ask for it in your local bookshop and help support independent small presses.

For enquiries regarding availability for readings or events you can get in touch via the Contact form on this site.
