Trevor Joyce’s collected poems to 2000 appeared as With the First Dream of Fire They Hunt the Cold from Shearsman Books. What's in Store, a collected from 2000 to date (which will include “The Peacock's Tale”), is forthcoming from The Gig this year, as is Courts of Air and Earth, a collection of workings from anonymous Irish texts, from Shearsman. Joyce was born and brought up in central Dublin, where he co-founded New Writers' Press with Michael Smith in 1967. He now lives in Cork, on the south coast of Ireland, where he has been a director of SoundEye: The Cork International Poetry Festival since its beginnings in 1997, and manages the soundeye.org website. He is a Fulbright Scholar and a member of Aosdána. Recent work is online at the Free Verse and Masthead sites.
