A blog post for Hayden’s Ferry Review, and other things

I thought I would offer, in digest form, some of my latest news.

My poem ‘Disassociation’ was published recently in Hayden’s Ferry Review (issue 54). HFR is a respected US literary journal that’s published out of Arizona State University. I’d tried them three times over the years before they, out of the blue, accepted the poem. A nice bonus is that they give you a chance to say a word about your piece on their blog, so here is my tupenny ha’penny worth. Thanks to the editorial team, especially the Poetry Editors Christine Holm and Dorothy Chan, Sam Martone (Ed-in-chief), and  Dan Diehl (Managing Ed).

Although published some time ago, I thought this digest might be the right place to mention that a poem (‘Nipples’) was published in Psychology Tomorrow, an online journal “at the intersection of art and psychology”. Thanks so much to Charif Shanahan, Psychology Tomorrow’s Poetry Editor, for his sensitive shepherding of this one into print. (I’d like to append a “trigger warning“, as this poem may be upsetting to those who have experienced sexual violence.) Here it is.

That’s all for now. Slán / Adios / Cheerio.

This is the cover of HFR, issue 51

My name is David McLoghlin, I am the author of "Waiting for Saint Brendan and Other Poems" (Salmon Poetry, July 2012); I am an Irish poet, writer and literary translator, who currently lives in New York, and blogs about its vicissitudes, while not writing other things, like my 2nd collection. I moved to NYC in 2010 to study at NYU's MFA Program in Creative Writing, from which I graduated in 2012, two months before my book was published. Before moving to the US, I lived in Ireland, Spain, Belgium, France, the USA, and travelled in a variety of countries (including Morocco, Czechoslovakia (when it was that country), Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina and Norway), whilst engaged in a number of pursuits. Newyorkperistalsis.wordpress.com came about as a catch-all for impressions related to moving to NYC alone: culture shock, in essence, and all her ugly sisters.
