This anthology came to be after reflecting on the 1996 Gill & MacMillan anthology The Irish Eros edited by David Marcus, which featured just two pieces acknowledging the existence of Irish gay life and one of those was a poem by a straight man. Queer Love is an anthology that seeks to go some way to redress the lack of acknowledgement of the LGBTQI+ community in Irish literary anthologies in general.

Queer Love has a mixture of established writers of international standing, writers who have been making a splash in recent years and new emerging writers. The anthology also has a mixture of previously published stories, newly commissioned work and those entered through our call out. Featuring stories by John Boyne, Emma Donoghue, Mary Dorcey, Neil Hegarty, James Hudson, Emer Lyons, Jamie O’Connell, Colm Tóibín, Declan Toohey, and Shannon Yee.

In April 2020 the publishers put out a call to poets to submit works of hope or its lack, which were about Covid-19 or an historical / fantasy plague; poems which were autobiographical / confessional or surreal / allegorical. The result is a collection of brilliant work by both established and emerging poets from across the English-speaking world, from Australia to India, Europe to North America. With its accounts of life changed utterly, lives abruptly finished; testimonies of the poignancy, the loneliness and sometimes madness of lockdown, this book is an essential statement of record on the dark times we are living through.

New Eyes on the Great Book by Divers Hands includes exciting new work by twenty-six Cork poets commissioned to respond to the Great Book of Ireland. All twenty-six poets are themselves not included in the Great Book, either due to age, publishing history or anomaly. Among the contributors are Leanne O’Sullivan,  Matthew Sweeney,  James Harpur, Doireann Ní Ghríofa,  Graham Allen, Mary Nooan and many others. The poets were selected by Graham Allen and Patrick Cotter. Graham Allen has also contributed a lively and informative introduction. The book is published by Southword Editions and is a joint initiative of the School of English University College Cork and The Munster Literature Centre. The project was wholly funded under the DUETS scheme. DUETS is funded by University College Cork’s Strategic Research Fund.
