Tract is the second in our Well Review Editions Series by the poet, Siún Carden and handbound by Badly Made Books in Cork. This pamphlet interrogates the material of paper itself and its capacity for disembodied truth-telling and hearsay. Tract forensically unpacks our complicity in coverups to reveal a dazzling, imperfect and irresistible world.
Siún Carden is from County Down and is a Research Fellow at the University of the Highlands and Islands’ Centre for Island Creativity, in Shetland. Her academic background is in social anthropology and she teaches on UHI’s MA Art and Social Practice. Her poetry has appeared in Magma, The Tangerine, Glasgow Review of Books, Northwords Now and The New Shetlander.

Sacrament of the Sick is the third in our Well Review Editions Series by the poet, James O’ Leary and handbound by Badly Made Books in Cork. This pamphlet twitches the thin curtain of wellness in contemporary society and reveals illness as a lining inherent in the human condition. O’Leary anoints, salves and disturbs with his wit, vigilance and grace.
James O’Leary is a poet from Cork, Ireland, where he lives with one human (Juliana) and two cats (Waffle and Sushi). He received the Poetry Ireland and Cúirt bursary in 2016, was selected for the Poetry Ireland Introductions Series in 2017, and his first chapbook, There Are Monsters in This House, was published by Southword Editions in 2018.
