Her debut poetry collection Bloodroot (Doire Press, 2017) was shortlisted for the Shine Strong Award for best first collection in Ireland and for the 2018 Julie Suk Award in the U.S.A. She is the author of a suite of poems about Dublin titled Town (The Salvage Press, 2018) and in 2019 won a Next Generation Artist Award from the Arts Council. The same year, she was a co-recipient of the Markievicz Award alongside collaborators Kimberly Campanello and Dimitra Xidous, for (S)worn State(s). The project interweaves autobiography,social history and myth to confront issues around reproduction, labour, and erotic autonomy and evoke a range of ‘states’ of female embodiment and thought, including pleasure, joy, and experiences of intellectual interrogation. Anne-Marie will pursue this project during her residency at CCI. More information:
