Trumpet Issue 12

Issue 12 of Trumpet, Poetry Ireland’s literary pamphlet, will explore the theme of ‘crossing’, examining how we cross binaries and boundaries through the act of writing. Guest-editor William Keohane explains: ‘This issue is a celebration and exploration of gender, identity, memory, and form. Trumpet 12 includes reflections on age, heritage, home; on the thin line between sickness and health, life and death. I had two primary aims with this issue: to highlight literary talent from Limerick, my hometown, and to platform some work from emerging trans and non-binary artists working across Ireland today.’ Contributors to Trumpet 12 include Matt Kennedy, Eoin McEvoy, Megan Nolan, Jesús Castro Yáñez, Eva Griffin, Rory O’Sullivan, Rere Ukponu, John Ennis, Raevynna El Messaoudi, Casey Jarrin, and Zara Meadows, with artwork and erasures from Limerick artist Laura O’Loughlin.
