Paul Casey

Paul Casey was born in Cork, Ireland in 1968. He grew up between Ireland, Zambia and South Africa, and has worked primarily in film, multimedia and teaching. His début collection is home more or less (Salmon Poetry, 2012), and he has recently been awarded a Cork City Council Artist’s Bursary to work on his second collection. His poems have been published in journals and anthologies in Ireland, the US, China and South Africa. A chapbook of his longer poems, It’s Not all Bad, was published by The Heaventree Press in 2009. In 2010 he completed a poetry-film based on the award-winning poem by Ian Duhig, The Lammas Hireling, which premiered at the Zebra Poetry-Film Festival in Berlin.
