the moth editions
'A series of rather beautiful miniature poetry books.' The Irish Times
The moth editions are small (at a mere 10cm high and 32 pages long) but perfectly formed. The aim of the series is to present new work by up-and-coming writers and selected work by already established writers ‒ from Ireland and abroad.
The first four titles in the series are Some Poems by Dermot Healy, Ciarán O’Rourke, Kate Dempsey and Ted McCarthy.
The series is edited by the editor of The Moth magazine, Rebecca O’Connor. The books cost just €4 each, and are available at select outlets. You can also order them here (postage is free)
