  • The Elysian: Creative Responses (eds. Graham Allen & Billy Ramsell) 

The Elysian: Creative Responses brings together established and emergent writers from Cork’s vibrant literary scene. Poets, fiction writers and essayists direct their creative lens on what is now, at least vertically, Cork’s standout architectural edifice. The result is a fascinating glimpse into the imaginative culture of Cork over, and now in some ways, beyond, the period of the recent economic crisis.


  • Holes: Decade I (Graham Allen)

Holes is a digital poem by Graham Allen that presents a new approach to autobiographical writing. It is a ten syllable one line per day poem which offers something less and something more than a window on the author’s life. Composition of Holes began on December 23rd, 2006. To mark the 10-year anniversary of the piece, a limited-edition print volume of the text’s first decade has been released. This edition is limited to 100 signed and numbered copies, not all of which have been released to general sale.
