Writers’ Workshop with John Liddy
Curiosity Does Not Kill The Cat: Writers’ Workshop with John Liddy
Founding editor with Jim Burke of The Stony Thursday Book, John Liddy has published 11 collections of poetry in English – three with Spanish translations – as well as books for children. His own translations include the work of Irish and Spanish poets. He was Limerick City of Culture Poet-in-Residence for July 2014 and co-edited 1916-2016: An Anthology of Reactions. His latest book, Madrid and Other Poems was published earlier this year, and a collection of all his Spanish-related poems is forthcoming.
Born in Co. Cork in 1954, John grew up in Limerick and took a degree with the University of Wales. He worked for many years as a teacher and librarian. He lives in Madrid and summers in Ireland.
