Cork Spring Literary Festival 2011THE CORK SPRING





Alan Garvey to read at the Cork Spring Literary Festival 2011



Reading with Pat Boran & Ian Wild, Thursday 17 February, 7.15pm


A native of Waterford where he still lives, Garvey’s third collection of poetry, Terror Háza, was published by Lapwing (Belfast) in 2009. His work is represented in various magazines and anthologies. He graduated with a MA in Creative Writing; and has read in Toronto and Newfoundland, and worked in Budapest, courtesy of the Arts Council. He is currently completing his New & Selected Poems.

“Garvey’s skill at poetic re-enactment, the descriptive and emotional power of many of the poems, offers a kind of spiritual-wasteland cartography”
- Dave Lordan, Southword


(Extracts of Garvey's work available on page 7 of festival brochure.)
