Trevor Joyce

Trevor Joyce is one of Ireland’s most innovative and respected poets.

He co-founded New Writers’ Press (NWP) in Dublin in 1967, publishing Michael Hartnett among others, and was a founding editor of NWP’s The Lace Curtain; A Magazine of Poetry and Criticism in 1968.

He is the author of The Poems of Sweeny Peregrine (1976), with the first dream of fire they hunt the cold (2001), What’s in Store (2007) and many other books.

Despite a 20 year hiatus from 1975-95, his oeuvre is as prolific as it is formally restless.
