Allen features in The Rising Generation

New Binary Press poet, Graham Allen, is featured in the new Poetry Ireland Review no. 118, edited by Vona Groarke, entitled The Rising Generation.

This special issue of Ireland’s foremost poetry journal brings together thirty-six new Irish poets, defining “new” as  someone who has had a first collection book or pamphlet published within the last five years. Each featured poet was asked to submit two original poems and to complete a questionnaire created by the editor. One of Graham’s two poems, ‘Sydney Park, Spring 2015’ has also been selected as one of Poetry Ireland’s featured poems for Poetry Day on April 28th.

To download a poster of Graham’s poem go to the Poetry Ireland website.  Both poems featured in The Rising Generation issue of Poetry Ireland Review are included in Graham’s forthcoming collection, The Madhouse System, to be published by New Binary Press in July.
