This weeks guest poet is Jarlath Fahy.
Jarlath Fahy first collection The Man Who Was Haunted By Beautiful Smells was published in November 2007 by WordsontheStreet.
His poetry appeared in Criterion, the Arts Society Magazine and in Outlet, the journal of the Philosophical Society. He completed a poetry masterclass with Ian Duhig and his poetry has since been published in Crannóg Magazine, WOW! and in the collection during which nothing happens – the Writers Writing Live event of Galway's Project '06 Festival.
He is a dramatic reader of his work and has read at the Voices from The Tower lunchtime readings in Galway's Fisheries Tower and at an Over The Edge Reading in Galway City Library and other venues. He has been compared to both Paul Durcan and Pat McCabe for his darkly comic content and to ee cummings for his typographical style. He is a native of Tuam Co Galway.
The Man Who Was Haunted By Beautiful Smells is his first published collection.
