A poet  and scholar from Kerry with two collections from Salmon Poetry (The  Road, Slowly in 2018 and How We Arrive in Winter in 2021), Liz Quirke is  an Irish Research Council Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholar, a  Galway Doctoral Fellow and is completing a PhD through Creative  Practice in Poetry on Queer Kinship in Contemporary Poetry. She is one  of the founders of Pendemic.ie,  a social history and literary project that has been archived by UCD and funded by the Arts Council of Ireland. Quirke’s poems have been  described in The Irish Times as “hard-won poems that rise out of a  larger silence, re-doing the lyrics of Máire Mhac an tSaoi and Eavan  Boland for 21st-century Ireland” and How We Arrive In Winter - a best  poetry collection of 2021 choice by The Irish Times - has been described  as “brilliant and deeply moving” and an “affecting and assured book, written from the frontlines of mourning, but attuned, too, to the  possibility of a future as in The Promise of Sweetbread which ends with  the epiphany that ‘there has never been/ such a call/ for light/ as  this.”  Liz lectures in Creative Writing in the School of English and  Digital Humanities at University College Cork.

Participation is limited to the first 100 guests to join.
