Author: Trevor Joyce

For fifty years, since publication of his first book in 1967, Trevor Joyce has been a unique voice in Irish writing. His books include WITH THE FIRST DREAM OF FIRE THEY HUNT THE COLD (New Writers' Press, 2001), COURTS OF AIR AND EARTH (Shearsman Books, 2006), What's in Store (New Writers' Press & The Gig, 2007), and SELECTED POEMS 1967-2014 (Shearsman Books, 2014). Rome's Wreck (Cusp Books, 2014) is a translation under constraint from the English of Edmund Spenser's Ruines of Rome. Joyce co-founded, in Dublin, the New Writers' Press and its journal The Lace Curtain in the late sixties, and then the annual SoundEye Festival in Cork in the nineties. He has been included in representative anthologies, including The Penguin Book of Irish Poetry and Anthology of Twentieth-Century British and Irish Poetry (Oxford University Press). He was a Fulbright Scholar in 2002/3 and served as Visiting Fellow in Poetry to the University of Cambridge in 2009/10. He was elected to Aosdána, the Irish affiliation of artists, in 2004, and has been awarded in Italy the 2016 N.C. Kaser Poetry Prize.
