Nuala O’Connor lives in Co. Galway, Ireland. Her forthcoming fifth novel, NORA, is about Nora Barnacle, wife and muse to James Joyce; it appears in January 2021 in the USA and in Ireland in April. Her new chapbook of historical flash fiction, Birdie, was recently published by Arlen House. Nuala is editor at flash e-zine Splonk.
Máighréad Medbh lives in Dublin. Imbolg, just published by Arlen House, is her eighth book of poetry, and incorporates older work with a sequence written this year. Her previous book, Parvit of Agelast, is a verse fantasy and was shortlisted for the 2017 Pigott Prize. She has also published a prose work, Savage Solitude, with Dedalus Press. She has been known as a performance poet, and is currently working on a creative-critical PhD at DCU.
