  • Padraig Regan is the author of two poetry pamphlets: Delicious (Lifeboat, 2016) and Who Seemed Alive & Altogether Real (Emma Press, 2017). In 2015, they were a recipient of an Eric Gregory Award, and in 2020 they were awarded the Ireland Chair of Poetry Bursary Prize. They hold a PhD on creative-critical and hybridised writing practices in medieval texts and the work of Anne Carson from the Seamus Heaney Centre, Queen's University Belfast, where they were a Ciaran Carson Writing and the City Fellow in 2021. This collection is the recipient of the 2021 Clarissa Luard Prize, awarded by the David Cohen Foundation.
    'The thing I admire most in Padraig Regan's writing is its lightness of touch. The poems may be ambitious, but their beauty comes from the simplicity with which these ingredients come together. I don't think I've ever come across such joyful, vibrant work.'
    Matthew Welton
    'To look up from Padraig Regan's words is to find oneself gently re-fitted into the world'
