Nicola Griffin’s debut collection is fuelled by a sense of displacement, both personal and public. She first considers her own struggles, and also those who find themselves lost in new countries, or within their own communities. Then there is the increasingly yawning gap between those with power and those without: the impact on civil liberty, and the tension between human need and environmental damage.
Nicola Griffin was awarded a Arts Council Literature Bursary Award to complete her first poetry collection. Her poems appear in the likes of Orbis, the Sunday Tribune, The Stinging Fly and Crannóg. In 2010 she won the Over the Edge New Poet of the Year Award, and appeared at the Cúirt Literary Festival in 2011. She lives in East Clare.
