 In Uncategorised

Son is a new essay by writer-in-residence William Keohane which will be launched at the 38th Cúirt International Festival of Literature at Galway City Distillery on Wednesday 19 April at 9.30pm.

In Son, Keohane brings us from his childhood into early adulthood and details a changing relationship with his name and his parents. Son is an essay about learning, naming, family, and love. Son is published by Lifeboat Press.

William Keohane is a writer from Limerick. His essays have been published in British GQ, Banshee, The Stinging Fly, and The Tangerine. In 2021, he was longlisted for Canongate’s Nan Shepherd Prize for Nature Writing and was selected for the Poetry Ireland Introductions series.

Cúirt International Festival of Literature will take place across venues in Galway City from 18-23 April 2023. It is one of Europe’s oldest book festivals, and a leading voice for literature both internationally and across Ireland. Cúirt brings readers and writers together to tell stories, share new perspectives, and to celebrate writing, books and reading in all forms. 

The Lifeboat Press has been publishing poetry in small pamphlets for almost a decade. They have championed emerging poets such as Padraig Regan, Susannah Dickey and Scott McKendry, and, more recently, major figures like Paul Muldoon and Leontia Flynn.
