I’m relieved and proud to announce that my first collection of poetry is now available in book shops. It’s currently available on the rainy Isles and will be available in North America from 19.11. If you’re not in those territories, then the only way to get your hands on a copy is via Amazon and the likes. The plan is to publish in other countries in 2019.

Me with Michael Longley, a darlin’ of a man and one of my favourite poets. He had the following to say about my first collection of poetry. Proud as punch.
‘Reconstructions is a wondrous outburst. Steafán Hanvey’s poems are bold improvisations on his themes of conflict and community. These heartfelt refractions find their own shape. They are nobly dishevelled, and they cry out to be read.’ –Michael Longley
Special guest, the wonderful Helen Shaw (Athena Media), opening the night.
The mighty Barry Devlin.
