January — April 2010
Cork poet Leanne O’Sullivan will work on her third collection Tales of the Flood during her Paris residency. Two earlier collections Waiting for My Clothes (2004) and Cailleach: The Hag of Béara (2009) were published by Bloodaxe Books. Her subject matter is of broadly human interest: communication and conflict between individuals; the relationship between inner and outer experience; and the shaping influence of spatial contexts and landscapes on states of being. Her poetry has been published in Ireland, England, India, America and Canada and she has won a number of prestigious awards.
