Done Dating DJs by Jenny Minniti-Shippey is the 2009 winner of the Fool for Poetry Chapbook Competition published by Southword Editions, Cork. Minniti-Shippey’s chapbook contains poems with precursors as varied as William Carlos Williams and Rita Ann Higgins.
The website says: "A wry sophisticated humour is invested in these crisp confident poems by a young poet who has found her voice. If Sex and the City were aimed at a higher brow level and written inverse, this could be it."
Jenny Minniti-Shippey will appear at the Munster Literature Centre's Éigse 2009 festival on Thursday, 19th February 2009.
A list of commended entries from the competition will be posted in February 2009.
