Christodoulos Makris

Christodoulos Makris is "one of Ireland's leading contemporary explorers of experimental poetics" (The RTÉ Poetry Programme). He has published several books, pamphlets, artists' books and other poetry objects, most recently The Architecture of Chance (Wurm Press, 2015) - selected as a poetry book of the year by RTÉ Arena and 3:AM Magazine - If we Keep Drawing Cartoons (If a Leaf Falls Press, 2016) and Browsing History (zimZalla avant objects, 2018). His next book This is no Longer Entertainment: A Documentary Poem will be published by Dostoyevsky Wannabe in 2019. One of Poetry Ireland's 'Rising Generation' poets, he works at the intersection of writing and other disciplines, and his practice concerns itself with public-private language and multiple/shifting personas enabled by digital communication. He has performed or otherwise presented his work widely across media and borders, with recent commissions and residencies including the Irish Museum of Modern Art and StAnza International Poetry Festival in St Andrews, Scotland. He is co-director of Dublin's multidisciplinary performance series Phonica, and the poetry editor of Gorse journal and associated imprint Gorse Editions. Christodoulos was Kildare's Writer in Residence 2018/2019.
