Unlaunched: Martina Evans, Victoria Kennefick and Aoife Lyall

Join West Cork Literary Festival for a special Zoom event with poets Martina Evans, Victoria Kennefick and Aoife Lyall in conversation with Séan Hewitt and John McAuliffe from the Unlaunched Books podcast to mark Poetry Day Ireland.

The Unlaunched Books podcast was set up in 2020 by Séan Hewitt, Victoria Kennefick and John McAuliffe to publicise new poetry collections that were missing out on launches due to lockdown.

We are delighted to host a special video edition of the podcast to mark the publication of new books by Martina Evans, Victoria Kennefick, Aoife Lyall.

Martina Evans’ new collection American Mules will be published by Carcanet on 29 April 2021. Victoria Kennefick’s debut collection Eat or We Both Starve was published by Carcanet in March 2021. Aoife Lyall’s debut collection Mother, Nature was published by Bloodaxe Books in February 2021.
