Trumpet 12

 In Uncategorised

This week saw Writer-in-Residence William Keohane launch Issue 12 of Trumpet, Poetry Ireland’s literary pamphlet at Limerick City Gallery of Art. As guest-editor, William invited contributors to respond to the theme of ‘crossing’, examining how we cross binaries and boundaries through the act of writing. He explains: ‘This issue is a celebration and exploration of gender, identity, memory, and form. Trumpet 12 includes reflections on age, heritage, home; on the thin line between sickness and health, life and death. I had two primary aims with this issue: to highlight literary talent from Limerick, my hometown, and to platform some work from emerging trans and non-binary artists working across Ireland today.’

Among the contributors to Trumpet 12 are previous Ormston House exhibiting artists and collaborators Laura O’Loughlin (The Limerick Show, 2021) and El-Reid Buckley (The Ireland We Dream/ed Of, 2023 and The Limerick Show, 2021), and our Front of House assistant Clara Laherty.
