Wear Your Heart on Your Skin

Picture from Contrariwise

I have a piece on literary tattoos in the current Poetry Ireland newsletter here. Lots of other stuff in there too about upcoming festivals and readings.

Speaking of wearing your heart, another agent didn't bite. Sigh. I think I will give up Project Agent for a while.

Cool article - so, tattoos are a passion of yours - as if I'd not guessed from the title of your last poetry collection, which was marvellous. All good stuff :)

Very cool! My new literary crush, Justin Taylor (author of the story collection Everything Here Is the Best Thing Ever), is editing a book of literary tattoos:

I love the idea of getting one but doubt I could ever decide on one line ...

Wow - I wish I'd seen that earlier. Deadline has passed...
I'll just have to buy the book, right? Thanks again, Eimear.
