Moira Linehan is the author of four collections of poetry. Her first two books, If No Moon (2007) and Incarnate Grace (2015), were published by Southern Illinois University Press. If No Moon had been selected by Dorianne Laux as the winner of the 2006 Crab Orchard Series in Poetry open competition. Both books were named Honor Books in Poetry in the Massachusetts Book Awards. In June 2020 Slant Books published her third book, Toward and at the end of that year, Dos Madres Press brought out her latest, & Company. She lives in the greater Boston area.
For her February 22, 2022, Worcester County Poetry Association reading, Linehan will read from Toward. Many of its poems are set in landscapes where she had been awarded a writer’s residency. In particular, she will highlight those begun at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in County Monaghan and the Cill Rialaig Project in Ballinskelligs, County Kerry.
