Grace Wells

Grace Wells

Grace Wells is one of the most ecologically-driven writers in Ireland today. Both her poetry and her children’s books are strongly informed by nature, the environment, and spirit of place.

Her debut poetry collection, When God Has Been Called Away to Greater Things (Dedalus Press, 2010), won the Rupert and Eithne Strong Award and was shortlisted for the London Festival Fringe New Poetry Award. Her second collection Fur (Dedalus Press, 2015) expanded the boundaries of eco-poetics, and was lauded by Poetry Ireland Review as 'a book that enlarges the possibilities of poetry’. Her poem ‘Otter’ received a 2017 Forward Prize.
