About Ghríofa
Doireann Ní Ghríofa is a poet and essayist. A Ghost in the Throat finds an 18th-century poet haunting a young mother, prompting her to turn detective. It was voted Irish Book of the Year 2020, and described as “glowing” (Anne Enright), “captivatingly original” (The Guardian), “sumptuous” (The Sunday Times), and a “masterpiece” (Sunday Business Post). Doireann is also author of seven critically-acclaimed books of poetry, each a deepening exploration of birth, death, desire, and domesticity. Awards for her writing include a Lannan Literary Fellowship (USA), the Ostana Prize (Italy), a Seamus Heaney Fellowship (Queen’s University), and the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature, among others.

About Power
Kevin Power is the author of Bad Day in Blackrock (2008), filmed in 2021 as What Richard Did (dir. Lenny Abrahamson), and White City (Scribner UK, 2021). He is the winner of the 2009 Rooney Prize for Irish Literature and the 2009 Hennessy XO Award for Emerging Fiction. His writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The Guardian, Irish Times, Irish Independent, The Dublin Review, Literary Review, The Dublin Review of Books, The Stinging Fly, and many other places. He is Assistant Professor of Literary Practice in the School of English, Trinity College Dublin, where he teaches on the MPhil in Creative Writing.
