PAULA CUNNINGHAM REVIEW
Poet Paula Cunningham
The new issue ofBurning Bush 2 is a feast of poetry. Poems from Amanda Bell, John W. Sexton and Peadar O'Donoghue, among many more. My review of Belfast-based poet Paula Cunningham's début collection Heimlich's Manoeuvre is there on page 52. Paula was recently placed second in the 2014 Gregory
O’Donoghue International Poetry Prize with a poem entitled ‘The Weather in the Mournes’. She writes droll, magical, moving work.
